The Border Quilt QAL {Quilt Center}

After a momentary delay, the start of the Border Quilt QAL is here! If you haven't joined in yet, there is still plenty of time to do so -- check out all of the information on Jen's blog and see Jen's first post about her flannel version of the quilt here!

To refresh your memories, I'm making my quilt from scraps in more traditional colors with a Kona Champagne background. The paisley print in the bottom center is my "inspiration fabric" for this quilt. There are batiks, traditional prints, and more modern prints mixed in with this fabric pull.

This week we're starting the center of the quilt and I chose to do the pieced version of the center since I'm working with scraps rather than yardage.

I was very strategic about getting my pieced unit squared up and I didn't have any tragedies! Here's the center with the solid border:

Now back to the grind until it's time for week 2! The rain here in Maryland is preventing me from getting good pictures of some things that are finished/nearly finished, so here's hoping that Florence changes course and just goes back out to sea.
