Jubilee update

Hi there, it's been a while.  I have been dragging my heels with my Jubilee Quilt but thought it was time for an update.  I spent ages trying to figure out what border to add to my star blocks. 
I finally added the half square triangles.  Now I have spent months trying to decide what to put on the applique borders.  I decided my original idea of having my cats and dogs represented on the borders was not going to happen.  My total lack of drawing skills is holding me back. 
I very nearly gave up on having an applique border at all.  As you can see I've been appliquing my initials.  I was a bit concerned that they are a bit too big and maybe I should have stuck to one colour.  I would appreciate some feedback if anyone has a suggestion. 

Thanks, Debra.x

Jubilee Finale

Most of you may have seen this on my blog, Humble Quilts. I thought I'd share it here on the Jubilee blog where it started.



I couldn't be more thrilled with it!!  

How about some updates on your Jubilee quilt. Is it time to bring it out from under the other projects and see it to the finish?

Lori's Jubilee

I'm trimming the edges and will make binding soon! I think I'll meet my goal of having my jubilee quilt done before May! My friend did the quilting and used wool batting. It's stellar!
