Freeze Frame - Quiltathon complete :)

Freeze Frame (69" x 86")
This morning, the final two hour clues (#11 & #12) were completed;  a load of nested borders!  But they didn't get the best of me :)

Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge this month is "teal."  I don't have any scrap teals, but I did burn through over a yard-n-a-half of teal yardage with all of these borders.

I would LOVE to load it on the frame right away;  I am absoLUTEly in love with this one!  I haven't sewed with fun, bright, jewel-toned fabrics in such a long time;  I loved every time I had to press the borders because I was able to look at the border blocks.  Really "happy" fabrics!
Anyway---yes, I would love to load it on the frame, but I still have Star Harbor loaded, and I don't think it will see much (any?) action today.  The tomatoes and chickens are screaming my name for the afternoon.  I'm in charge of making chicken stock---for the first time.

I hope your Saturday is amazing!  The weather here is GORGEOUS!!!!  Sunny and LOW LOW LOW humidity.

If you missed my 1000th post, consider taking a moment to read it?  I don't think you'll be too disappointed.

Wow is all I can say. Perfect borders and the brights are awesome. I'll bet you have plenty of volunteers to take this one off your hands. Enjoy your outdoor chores in that gorgeous weather. Chicken stock sounds kind of hot, but I live in Florida, lol.

Oooh I love it! I have added this one to my 'to do' list. I am sure I read all of your posts about this quiltathon but I don't recall what size the quilt is.
