Scrappy Mountain Majesties

Nearly two years after piecing the blocks for this quilt, I took pity on it today and finally sewed on some borders. Am not that pleased with them, as the inner border could have been a little narrower, but I was worried that the poor quilt wouldn't cover the sides of the bed properly, so I made that border a little wider than usual.
Am sure that the little grandson this quilt is for will not notice a thing! :-)

There are a number of bloggers out there who are running challenges to finish UFO's before the end of the year. I was really tempted to sign up for one of them this time, but after looking at my UFO list, decided not to join in. I guess I just don't need any pressure right now. There is going to be enough to do pretty soon anyway, with the great-grandchild on the way in November and a new grandchild expected in December. I'm sure that when the grandchild is born, his parents and older sibling will be moving in with us for a couple of weeks for some TLC. Hmm...maybe I should think about doing some cooking and baking in advance? Or maybe I should sew as much as I can now before things get way too busy?
