At Last

 "The Brick School House - Built 1913" is finished and soaking in its bath.

When it is dry, sandwiched and quilted, it will join the remaining two pieced blocks ("Ohio Star" and "Broken Dishes") to create the last row of the Mirror Centennial Quilt...And then, the borders!

I'm delighted with the red sashing after all.  I hesitated to use it at first because there is so much red bordering some of it, but it turns out to be the perfect frame for the blocks and I like the overall effect.  There will be a narrow red border around the entire centre, and then borders.

Meanwhile, though cool and windy, there's been a break in the showers and the overnight lows are forecast to be reasonable, so I'm off to plant my bedding outs, which have been patiently waiting since Sunday afternoon!
