Nuts and Bolts is finished. Well, the flimsy is done.

Last Monday, I announced that Mister's little baby quilt flimsy was finished.  I forgot that I wanted to put on a simple border.  So here it is, totally finished as a flimsy.  Yay!

You'll have to forgive the crummy exposure.  It's gloomy here and drizzly, and no way am I going out to photograph my little quilt.

The border is black with little bits of color that match the colors in the quilt.  You can't see it from the photograph.  I love that it ties it all together. 

Yesterday, I got a package via the post office.  On Sunday!  Can you believe it?  I ordered a queen size Thermore batting from Connecting Threads, and that's what came.  So, today I make my quilt sandwich and then start hand quilting it.  At first I thought I'd tie the layers together, but this is going to a newborn, and you know that as he grows older, his little fingers are going to find the ties and he's going to try to eat them.  So, I'm quilting instead.  Nothing much, just outlining the white boxes.  It would be fun to put french knots in the middle of the little octagons, but he'll find those knots, too.  Don't want him eating knots.

Really wonderful! I like the black border.

The other colors in the black show up when I biggie sized the photo - it's perfect. Will you bind it in the same? The post office is nuts lately...
