Just so you know, I haven't abandoned Viola now that she is off my design wall. I have a plan for a border involving half square triangles. I got the triangles made, as you see in the photo above. They all need to be trimmed to 3 inches, a task I know is going to take me a little while. I plan to stay with my father next week, and will take them with me as a portable project. Dad is continuing to recover from his broken leg, but still isn't well enough to be on his own.
Here is Viola, resting on the guest room bed. That bed is queen sized, and the top fits just on the top of the mattress. The finished quilt is going onto a twin sized bed, so I do need to make the quilt a bit wider with the borders I have in mind. Once I get those half square triangles trimmed down to size, the borders should come together quickly. Then off to the quilters with her, and with luck, Viola will be on Eva's bed this spring!
Hope you all have a great weekend.
