Today I put the trees and the triangle borders on my village. I got so interested in the borders that I forgot that I was going to quilt-as-you-go on this one and do some intricate quilting on the houses. Oh well, maybe I can still do something interesting there but it will be a lot harder on such a large piece. The next thing to decide is how to finish it. I still haven't come up with any words. It might be busy enough already without adding words to the mix. I like the burgundy border but I don't think I have enough of it. I could get some more but if I am going to buy more fabric I might think of black on the outer border. The piece on the left is the other black and white I bought on Wednesday. It might be all right if it was a bit wider, although it looks a bit gray from a distance. I can't use the checkerboard because it's not long enough and I have no more of the black fabric. Well, I will sit on it for a few days and see what ideas come to the surface. Meanwhile I will think about how to quilt it.
