Work In Progress Wednesday - Almost there

Well, I am almost at the final stage of completing the little crazy quilt.

Since last week I have added the following to the border:

1) a wide edge in dark green batik
2) a line of running stitches, laced with greyish-blue chenille thread
3) another round of glittery trim
4) a line of wobbly Basque stitches
5) purple ric-rac fastened with Herringbone stitches

I want to add some beads and then start the edging. Then I will take a look and see if it is time to say, 'Finished'.

What progress have others made? Have a look at Sharon's Pintangle.

coming along beautifully, the beads will give it the sparkle.

What a good combination: ric-ric ribbon and herringbone stitches. Must remember that.

Rickrack and herringbone is always a great combo. Love the way you embellish the border.

Thank you! I love the combinnation as well but it is not my idea originally. First seen on Sharon's quilt?

It is not only an attractive combination, it is easy and fast to work as well.

Thanks. Yes, I want some shiny beads on that slightly dull border.
