Design Wall Monday

I wrestled with the Country Stars blocks and more than half of them are assembled.  The quilt is so large it drags on the floor underneath the design wall and there is a clump of gray Muffball fur from where she has been sleeping on the corner.

Once the body of the quilt is assembled, there will be a 1.5" black inner border and then a 6" red outer border to add.

I made blueberry jam today with the blueberries we picked Saturday.  One pesky jar didn't seal, and I have a scalded spot on the palm of my hand where the jam bubbled out of the pot.  I still need to process the rest of the blueberries - probably a couple gallons worth.  The plums are still a little too tart to harvest, but the zucchini are coming on fast.  Daniel has been scouring the white picket fence with TSP/bleach in preparation for painting.
Spinning for the "Tour de Fleece" continues but I'm going at a fairly leisurely pace and haven't added any finished yarn.  Therefore, no changes in the stash report last week.

Country stars quilt is quite striking. Your choice of borders should frame it nicely. I'm also running out of space for my borders on my design wall.
