Progress? Yes!

Well, I wanted to share the progress I made on my baby goslings quilt but for some reason I'm having a terrible time getting good photographs...day or night...doesn't seem to matter.  Color & lighting are way off and quite frustrating.  Anyway, I'll do my best.

I was able to add the sashing and outside border last night.
In real life the sashing is greener and the white parts are creamier.
But they all blend perfectly.
That's where it pays to have all the fabrics from the same line!
Basically the quilt top is finished. 
Just need to layer with batting and baste it to the backing fabric
 (which is the same fabric as the outside border in the picture). 
I'm not looking forward to crawling around on the floor
for the basting process. 
My back has been bothering me this week,
as well as my wrist.  (Yeah, I'm falling apart!).

Anyway, before I start that, I wanted to see how the prairie point border was gonna look so I pinned a small section and tucked them under the outside border.
Aren't they the cutest?

I think they'll be the perfect finishing touch.

Hopefully my next post will be the big FINISH!
