Actually, I didn't think it was finished. After all, I've got 208 hourglass blocks that I made along with the monthly blocks, and they were supposed to be a second border. But, as soon as I sewed on the first border, the quilt said to me, "Colleen, I am busy enough with all of these complicated blocks. I do not need a pieced border!" Well, who am I to argue with a quilt! So, it's finished. And I'm glad.
Now, for the backing. I did buy fabric for the back, online. When it arrived, it was all wrong. So wrong! It is a teal colour, and I thought it looked kind of oceany when I saw it. (After all, the real name of the quilt is Sand and Sea Glass.) But the blues in the quilt are more of a sky blue, not teal at all. I'll save that for a backing for something else, and find new fabric for this one.
So, today, my plan is to clean in my sewing room. I'm getting distracted by all of the bits of thread and fuzz on the floor!
