I finally finished the quilt top pictured above on Easter morning. I put the last border on and then rushed out the door! I brought it over to Easter dinner and when I opened it up to show everyone, my youngest nephew laid down on it and pretended to be asleep. Very cute. I guess it passes the "good enough to use" test! I'm calling it Chain Link. There are black borders that you can't see in the picture. I took a full picture of it on Monday night, but it was hanging kind of wonky. I'll try to get another one soon.
It took about 5 yards (mostly) all out of my stash. I ended up buying the narrow gold border, but the rest I already had!
I wasn't liking it very much as I was making it, but this kind of design really doesn't shine until it is all put together. Now I'm pretty happy with it!
