Ta Da!

 I worked a good part of Sunday on the Tumbling Block quilt. I decided to make a piano key border, using all the colors in the quilt. Last night, I added a black border to the outer edge and it is a finished top!
I will get a better picture when I take it to the store to hang it up...maybe I can talk someone into holding it up for me!
The innocent looking Conrad wouldn't leave the top alone while I ironed...I had to lock him in the bathroom. Just long enough to iron, that is...

I am also getting ready to go on quilt retreat with friends this weekend. We are going to the same place that we went to last time. Should be lots of fun!
