Design Wall Monday

It's Design Wall Monday and Memorial Day too!  Don't have a patriotic project to show, but I do have some progress on my Orange Crush UFO!  I feel it's safe to say that this will not be completed by midnight Tuesday to count for a UFO finish for May, so I am re-adjusting and will try to finish it for June!  If you look closely, you can see the fabric I chose for the border on the left side of the quilt (it kind of blends in with the woodwork).  I am thinking about adding another narrow black containment border to the pieced border . . . I welcome any thoughts you may have on that! 

It's been a busy, busy month, especially this past weekend as we had a big birthday bash for 3 of the 4 granddaughters that live with us.  The oldest, Madison, turned 7 and the twins turned 5.  As if that wasn't enough, we went to Cedar Point amusement park yesterday.  I need a nap!

Check out what everyone had on their Design Walls at JudyL's Patchwork Times!

Your quilt looks like it had lots of pieces. It has come together nicely. You have been busy with birthdays. How fun that you got to go to the amusement park.

Love the teal and orange combo in Orange Crush.

Sounds like a busy but fun weekend. Hope you get your nap!

I feel a little tired just looking at the photo of all those kids :)
I like the idea of a black border after the pieced's such a great quilt!

How fun to have all those little girls! I love the orange crush. I have to say I think I like it as is. But it will still be awesome if you add a border!
