Rainy Days and Thursdays...

 What to do on a cloudy Thursday that quickly turned to rain?
Well, for starters, teach the final class for the Over The River quilt.
That was really fun. I saw one finished quilt and helped with pointers
on another. My third student had a funeral to attend and couldn't come.

I headed home and went to the studio to work on the Princeton Plates.
 I asked Handsome for his input and together we chose the sashing, 
cornerstone and border fabrics. The blocks are all assembled now, 
so today, I'll square up the quilt and add the first and second borders.
 Then, I'll be ready to send it off to the long-arm. While it's away, I'll make
 coordinating pillowcases, shams and prepare the binding for its return.
There's still a bunch to do, but I couldn't wait to share my progress.
 If you need me, I'll be in the studio.
Catch ya later!

Wow that is looking great. I wasn't too sure about it when you started, but what a difference seeing the plates placed in the background squares. I'm sure the finished quilt will be stunning as usual

You and Handsome make quite the design team as this quilt is truly stunning. I love the colors and fabrics and how you have put them together so carefully. Stitching Bliss Dear...
