In the end, I chose black

I finally made a decision. I chose the black fabric to border the final set of four-patch blocks for Be Yourself. And I'm okay with it.

This is going to change the plans I had for quilting, however.




Once I had finished all 14 black blocks (there are now 42 blocks in total), I cut into these beautiful fabrics that the OnlyChild gave me for Christmas.


I'm making the smaller version of this:


I love this pattern! I'll give you a peek at my Mini Mail Sack when I'm finished.

Today, I'm meeting my friend Kim for breakfast, then we're going to a quilt shop or two, and who knows what else. It's always a bit of an adventure with Kim. That girl can shop for days!

It's a long weekend...and with no marking. Plenty of time to visit and sew. Have a happy one!

I love those prints bordered in black -- I can't wait to see how they look with the other fabrics. Hope you had a great day with your friend!
