Happy National Quilting Day!

What are you going to do today?  I am looking forward to making more progress on quilting the Brothers and Sisters quilt! 
It took me a while to decide how to quilt all the blocks, but now I am on a roll and have just more than half of them done.
I'm doing curves and swirls - I think it adds a nice softness to the blocks.  
After the blocks are done I have borders to figure out.  Three plain and one pieced.  The pieced one I will do like it is in the book, but the plain borders I need to figure out.  I'm sure an idea will come once I get there!

This is a huge quilt, so I'm glad I was able to get the centers done fairly easily.  Thank goodness for that extra throat space that my Juki has!  I'm using light delft blue in 50 wt for the quilting, and it looks perfect.  I bought two large spools because, like I said - this quilt is huge, and I don't want to run out.  Plus I will be making matching shams as well.

Hope you have a great day, and especially that you get to do some quilting!
