When I got home from retreat last week I discovered the perfect border in my stash for the baby blocks quilt -- Crayons!
Here it is, flimsy finished and packed away with its back, ready for quilting. It's small enough, I will probably quilt this one myself. Pattern is "Playing with Blocks" by Marci Baker.

And I had a near-finish. Again, the stash yielded the perfect sashing fabric for Elegant Garden. I was able to get the inside finished. It's now put aside until I can lay it out to square up and measure for the three borders.
Even though it's mostly floral fabric, my husband really likes this quilt -- maybe it's the black background on the florals. And, surprisingly, he likes the yellow-orange cornerstones. I was perusing my books one day, looking for patterns that would use some fabrics I'd had for a while. I need to figure out which book this came from to give proper credit.
Today I'll be putting the final border on True Blue. And mailing some orphan blocks to Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
Linking up with Sarah's "Whoop Whoop Friday."
