Last Step of RRCB and Two Years Ago Today...

 Just realized my first photo doesn't show the green border at all...haha, this quilt it just too large!  The close up at least you can see the progress I made tonight on RRCB.  I finished piecing the outer border and cut and added the inner green border.  I would have liked to have added that outer border, but I think that I need to add more to it, because it isn't looking like it is going to fit right.  I know I am not suprised by that, my quarter inch isn't the same as Bonnie's--yet!

I hope to finish this tomorrow, but I have to work in the morning (and praying my migraine doesn't return..was a bad morning and afternoon for me today) and then I am planning to finally make it to another meeting of the Phoenix Moder Quilt Guild!  I am looking forward to doing some hand sewing on my hexies and getting to know the gals a bit more.  But once I am home I may try to get this quilt off my to be done list!  I am really ready to be done with it. 
And I can't let today go by without saying wow, how did two years pass since my Dad died?  The days just keep marching on.  I really do miss him and think of things that I wish I had asked him or that I want to share with him.  He was a huge Packer fan and belatedly turned me into one (he gave me tickets to a game at Lambeau which would hook anyone--GO PACK GO!) and every game I see I hope my Dad is somehow cheering from heaven.  So I just wanted to give my Dad a shout out, I love you Dad!

Thanks once again for the inspiration. I've been plugging away today at the last of my HST units. Seeing yours finished is helping move me along again. Congtatulations on tackling this HUGE quilt. Glad it started as a mystery or I'd have given up before I started.

That sure is a large quilt. But it looks so great. Good job on finishing it. I am sorry about your dad. We lost my husband's dad 3 years ago after taking care of him for 1 1/2 years. It does get easier to handle the pain but he is still so close to our hearts.
