Summer Days Update

I've been working on my Summer Days WIP (Work In Progress) quite a bit this past week. I've finished 2 borders and am working on the third. I took a picture of it on my design wall, none of the borders or corner pieces are sewn on, just pinned to the wall:

Hahahahah!! I just noticed there is a wayward leaf pinned to the center block!! I'll have to get that back in it's correct spot!

Here is a close-up of one of the borders that I have finished:

I've been getting things done pretty quickly due to the fact that I finally got the next book on CD from my local library in the series I've been listening to. I'm on the 8th book, Naked Empire, by Terry Goodkind, in the Sword of Truth series. I like the fantasy genre sometimes, and these books are long enough to keep me occupied for a week or so of evening sewing sessions.

I'm trying very hard to finish these last 2 borders before starting a new quilt, because I'm afraid if I take this one off the design wall, it will languish in the WIP bin for a long time before it sees the light of day again. But when it's done, I'm going to start working on the big boy quilt for my nephew. My goal is to present it to him when he moves from his crib into his big boy bed. I'd better get moving!

This is a fabulous quilt!!! I so love the touches of the blue/turquoise color.
I know what you mean about taking it down and it not getting finished....but it's sooo hard when you want to get started on something new!!
