Today I made the last two snakes and sewed them on to the borders. Now all I have to do is sew the borders on. The next big question will be how to quilt it. I probably have to get some more batting before I start, so I will probably not get at the quilting right away. I had planned to do something fairly interesting on the houses, like pebbles on the driveway and shingles on the roof. I am thinking of some kind of leaves around the snakes too. This may all change when I actually start quilting. I had planned to quilt the houses first and then add the borders but in the heat of the moment I forgot. I may cut the batting in three pieces as was suggested by Keryn at Quilting Twin. I have Machine Quilting in Sections by Marti Mitchell and she goes into detail about that method.
