Finally!

Well, it's not a finish, but it is a step in the right direction.  The Across the Sea Quilt-a-long top is completely pieced.   All fabrics from Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow with Kona Raffia solid.  Aided in part by iTunes for iPad as I sewed up a storm to some old favorites like Pearl Jam Corduroy, U2, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins and even a little Snoop.  Amazing how music can make sewing so much more fun.  And amazing how many memories those old songs bring with them.


Sorry for the gloomy photo, it's a rainy day here and this is the most light filled spot in my house!

When I cut the border pieces out I was thinking they were going to be the binding, but then I realized it was the border.  I couldn't get the idea of using the scraps as binding and I almost just did that and skipped the border.  I kept remembering Jennifer saying [writing] that the scrappy border really makes it, so I went with it and I'm glad I did.  Now just have to get to the back and get this baby finished and off to its Halloween Birthday recipient pronto!
