To border or not to border....

Just finished a quilt top that was started with scraps from a friends stash.....have it all together except for the decision whether to border it or not. I did have to add a few squares of green from my stash to make the complete blocks, and have some yardage of the batiky looking squares. Pic of it is below...... What do you all think - does it need another border or does it look ok as is?

Gratitudes -
1. A job that helps pay the bills and that deals with things that I enjoy. =)
2. The cooler weather and rain here in N. Tx this week.

More Finished UFO's

The last 10 days have been stressful for me as I've been working over night shifts at a different store helping to get the remodel of it finished. Will be glad to not be working from 9 PM to 5 AM. And now trying to get back into a normal sleep pattern has proven to be harder than I thought it would be. Ugh.....I will say this though, in not being able to sleep I've been able to get a lot of quilting done and have finished up a bunch of UFO's over the last few days. =)

Finished off a set of basket swap blocks made from repro fabrics from a 2-3 (?) years ago and combined them with leftover strip sets from a swap that I was in last year. Set them all together in a strippy quilt and love how it turned out.

Have also finished off the final 4 Sunshine Challenge quilts. Blocks in these were from Claire A, Pat F, Ann D, Donna H, Shirlee G, and Lori A. Pics are below.

Gratitudes -
1. God's bountiful provision for all of my needs.
2. I'm done with the overnite shifts at work!

More Sunshine Challenge Quilts

Still working my way through the challenge blocks from Sunshine. I've finished off another 4 tops and have used a total of 92 blocks out of the 123 that I started with. =) Blocks in these tops were by Carol E, Betty H, Carol M, and Shirlee G. I've enjoyed playing with these blocks, and am planning to offer another challenge with the remaining inherited fall & halloween fabs once I've moved to IN later this summer. =) Pics of the quilts are below.

1. Registration for the Fall semester is done and I've been able to get into all of the classes I'm supposed to take!
2. The cooler weather yesterday and today here in N. TX.
