Sprouts are growing

My love sprouts are coming right along.  I think I will stop at 4 columns.  I have the top and bottom borders figured out.  What to do for the sides?

I started a quilt that will be a Christmas gift for a friend of ours.  I made them one last year but Dot has claimed it.  Poor Dennis is left out in the cold lol.  I'm not much for doing patterns per se but the magazine American Patchwork and Quilting August 2015 issue had a cart wheel pattern that really appealed to me.

I am adding another row and then will decide on sashings.

Also today Grand Illusion (last years Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt) is on the frame getting quilted.  I have a recipient selected and it will be a Christmas present.  After not having my side saddle for about nine months, the tops have stacked up.  It's time to get caught up especially at the rate that I piece...  Like there is tomorrow lol!

It's really pretty in person.  All the different fabrics bring back lots of memories.

Time to get back to it.
