A step too far?

I was going to title this post 'cruising in the suburbs' but decided that was taking the whole city thing just a teeny bit too far.  I wonder why I feel the need for some kind of reference to the current work in my post titles when sometimes it's just plain hard work thinking something up.  For my next piece I am going to stop myself, if I can, and have posts called 'Did some sewing today' or 'Chopped up another chunk'.

Anyhow, it really does feel like I'm cruising now.  I have the top strip  and the right-hand side pieced and ready to join on...



...and left-hand side bit already sewn in place.


Then I have in mind one more tiny border-y thing,maybe like this:


and it'll be done.


Linking up with Let's Bee Social today.

Very cool! This quilt is so different. If someone tried to describe it to me, I would not be able to picture it... such a mish mash of prints, but it totally works. I think that square border will be awesome.

It surely is a pleasure to see your progress on this beautiful quilt, Kaja. Looking forward to it's completion!

There's a lot more color in it than I expected, based on your original fabric pull, but I'm loving it, and it's still very manly. Go for it!

Such a great quilt! I have loved watching your progress on this one. Very inspirational! I too, have trouble thinking up post titles. My mind is not very imaginative that way at all.:)

Good second border. Are you combining the solids with some greys? It has been so much fun to watch you develop your quilts.

"Chopped up a Chunk" possibly the best potential blog post title I've ever heard - lmao!!!! I'm absolutely in love with the way this is coming along, you're definitely motoring right now!
