The Answer is Blowin' in the Wind

No matter how hard I tried the quilt top would not stop blowing in the wind. It now measures 83.5 x 99 inches and I added a dark purple (plum?) 2 inch border. I'm now trying to decide what next for a border...prairie point leaves or appliqued leaves on a border. Oh, and doesn't the top with the sunlight reflecting through it look like stained glass?

At any rate...I can't decide what to do for the next border so I'll set it aside for a while. This is the quilt I am making the cq bedrunner to match. I need to work some more on those blocks too.

Doctor finally found a possible diagnosis for peripheral neuropathy...Guillaine Barre Syndrome (GBS). It's evidently rare...who would have thought? I think I'm getting better though. I've been forcing myself to use those fine motor skills even tho' it's been somewhat difficult. "Use it or lose it".

The colors in the quilt are spectacular and, yes, it does look like stained glass. I can't wait to see what you do for the CQ bedrunner. I've just gotten into CQ and love it.

Gorgeous guilt. I'd be tempted to leave it in the sun, it's so pretty. (I know that's a bad idea!) Did a google on GBS. Sounds terrible. Hope there's something the doctor's can recommend.
