WIP Wednesday (work in progress)

Hello again everyone.  There is a new little button up the top right on my side bar.  Little White Dove is doing a work in progress links party and I have decided to join in. This, I hope will encourage me to get my three quilts finished.  The first one I will be sharing is the TQA.  Now that my backing fabric has arrived, I really want to get this one finished





A post or two back, I shared with you the Triangle Quilt Along I was doing with the lovely Sassy Quilter.   I did not make the finished deadline, so this is why I am sharing it over on the WIP Wednesday with Little White Dove.

I have added my two borders.  I decided on a 1 3/4" white border and then cut up all the bits of fabric I had left to sizes between 2 and 2 1/2 " as the next border.   I am quite happy with it so far.
I have bin basted it ready for quilting.  I think it needs a little more straightening out and a few more basting pins before I take it to my sewing machine.   I have not quite decided what quilting pattern I shall use.  I may just stitch in the ditch and 1/4" inside the triangles or I may challenge myself with circles or waves....the jury is still out.
