I puttered a bit as I came up with this graded pink border. Problem is, I think I puttered too much, and completely over-thought how to do the corners. Tomorrow, I will remove the red, and replace the 3 pieces with a single triangle. It will (1) be simpler, (2) have less seams, and (3) stand a change of having the corner point match well. Aside from that, I think it is coming along.
I have a ton of client work right now, and much of it is custom. As a result, I have been hitting my limit of how long I can stand to quilt at about noon or 1pm each day. That is 5 hours of quilting for the day, which is plenty. Then I get a walk (a little forced fresh air before we have snow is a good thing!@), and then I am free to play with some piecing. This solid quilt is at 25", and will end up at about 40", eventually. Time to go cut some foundations while my youngest whines some more over doing any homework...sigh
