Just look at this GORGEOUS border.  Good sewing friend (now VERY good sewing friend!) Andrea has recently been travelling to Europe and brought back some pieces for our regular sewing group.  How lucky are we?

It's a chintz border print from Den Haan and Wagenmakers in The Netherlands.  This shop is famous for their chintz fabrics, so to receive a piece is wonderful..This border has that lovely chintz coating feel.  I'm not sure how I'll use it yet, but it will need to be something special.

Further sewing of sashing strips for DD's special quilt.  These pinwheels will finish at 2".
Several much longer pieces that need a good press to lay flat, but for now, I'm storing them this way.  I have lots to make, it's a very big quilt.
