Working on the next UFO

Inspired by the image above, which must have come from some old quilting magazine - - I'm C.A.S.E.ing (copying and stealing everything) the border! I had set aside enough fabric from the log cabin centres to do the binding, but I've changed my mind.  I'm going to use it for a narrow border, and then add a six inch pieced border all the way around, based on Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Mountain Majesties.

I've sewn all the big HSTs, and started trimming them up into 1.5" strips.  I hope to have the pieces stitched together before the weekend, and get this baby sandwiched and start quilting over the long weekend.

I've decided I'm not going to quilt the Black & White quilt myself on my domestic machine.  It nearly broke my back to put those borders on.  It is HEAVY!
