Off the floor!
The blocks for this quilt have been spread out on the living room floor for over a month. Yesterday just before kickoff I got the last green border on it. I'm going to admire it in the wall for a few days and then I'll put it away until the last appliqued vine border is done....a long time from now.
Now I'm working on drafting the applique for the last border. I'd like to get one prepared so I can take it with me to Birds of Feather to work on during the slow periods and at night when I'm hanging out with my brother and SIL. I was lucky, the blossoms space out almost exactly the same as the inner border.
The only difference is that my center motif will face in a different direction than it does in the inner border. But there's no way to get around that without making the outer border look totally different. It's going to be fine and I'm excited to get started on it.

it was a long time coming to get it to this point and I bet you are pleased. Better then having it sit folded up and out of sight! Congrats

Yowza! What a gorgeous quilt! Handwork takes time, but it's time that might otherwise slip away (like the Falcons lead). Well worth the trouble.

I think I am going to love the outer border being inside out at the centre!
