My husband and I went to bed REALLY early last night, as in right after 9 PM. We have gotten into the bad habit of staying up too late to get up early. We just ran out of steam last night. He puts in many many work hours, and I just mess around for hours every day!
When we awakened this AM, he said, "I think someone is taking a shower." That would have been odd since it was 6 AM. It was raining, so I thought that was the water sound he heard. But when I came down to the sewing room (to read, of course), what to my wondering eyes should appear, but my daughters' handiwork, and a quilt so dear?

Here is one side with all 3 borders on...1-1/2" finished, pieced HSTs and then 4-1/4" finished. I picked the light cream for the pieced border in hopes that it would bring out the cream squares in the center (plus, I had a chunk of it in my creams box and didn't want to cut out 50 different creams).
I am worn out. My feet started swelling again yesteday. They are not very good tonight. I think I'll go lie down in bed and do my Bible reading.

Once I did the math, I decided that I wanted the brown border to be the same width all around the quilt. So I added the cream border on just two sides to make the brown the same width as the top.
Meet my new on-the-go hand piecing project.
Anyone recognize this pattern? I know what it is, but I want to know if YOU know.
Do you think it would look better with a variety of creams or just one? The blocks are pieced and appliqued, but the 4 blocks are just lying on my cutting board in the picture.
