Where have all the flowers gone?

There aren't too many left in my yard....but they can be found on the florabunda quilt top. 
   While I was putting together all the blocks, I was planning the border.  Nope, not gonna happen.  I measured this one and found out it was about what I wanted.....54" by 72".  A 5" border on each side would grow it into a double bed size.   My first plan was really the best for me.....just a 2 inch band around it.  With all the seams on the edges from the blocks, I like to have a band at least to corral it and keep it from stretching or such till quilted.  And yellow binding will finish it off.....eventually.


I went outside to try and get some better pictures and truer colors.    Boy, it is still hot, hot, hot.  The humidity is down but I am so tired of 95 degrees.
   Not sure when I will get it quilted.....I am waiting on my batting order to arrive and my finger joints are really inflamed this week.  I think it is time to give them a rest.  So..... it will be straight line quilting on this one to emphasize the pattern. 

 
   I am really loving this one....just had to share it.
Happy stitching.
