Summer Quilt Projects

I am going to say the usual...I can't believe how long its been since I posted.
I have been up to my ass in crocodiles trying to drain this swamp.
Nah... it's summer I like to be outside, so that really limits the amount of time left over
for screen play.   
 Our summer spot. 

 And this is what I did on my vacation 

The picture is taken in full sun on the deck, so is a bit washed out looking.  I don't usually
work in these kinds of colours so it was challenging to stick with it. 
I had the good fortune of acquiring someone else's ufo at a recent Guild auction. For a very small sum. I know the lovely lady these blocks belonged to, she is no longer able to sew or quilt. There was no info with this kit re designer or pattern name.
There were 8 completed blocks and 4 in various stages. I made several more from my scraps, to make this a larger quilt. There was lots of the light green fabric  included in this ufo pack. 

 I will add  a border(s) but haven't decided as to colour(s).  I am thinking of using the rest of the light green and  a tiny bit of white. Keeping it simple, making a one inch "straight"
border is enough of a challenge for this piecer.
This isn't everything, more later.
Wishing you a happy Friday. and as D A M  say
