Done

This one is DONE and I'll be mailing it off soon, as a QOV. I removed all my leafy/viney quilting stitches in the border - it was OVERDONE and inappropriate. Some of the stitch/needle holes were still visible so I spritzed it heavily and hung it out to dry. Looks pretty good now. I did a simple stitch-in-the-ditch between 2 of the borders. This is much simpler and more in keeping with the stripes. I couldn't believe I actually had this backing in my stash - 4.75 yards. How perfect is that!
