Still growing, and I still like it

This is what I got sewn together today.  I am always amazed by how long seemingly simple things take me.  Getting all these 2 1/2" squares together in a seemingly random pattern was harder than it should have been, I think.  Then, keeping them that way when I sewed them all together was another challenge.  It was worth it, however.  I really like the way this group of squares frames the triangle star in the center.

I think I am going to go with a triangle border.  The question is whether or not to add another red border first.  Tom and I both like it with the border best, but a final decision won't be made until tomorrow.  I am not sure I will get this done tomorrow, but I will give it a good shot.  I think this will be the last post about this quilt until the top is done.  I don't want to wear out its welcome.
I don't usually just work on one project at a time, but this quilt has really got my attention.  It must be the bright colors and the fact that I am making it up as I go along.  I always enjoy the process, but this one seems extra fun.
Until tomorrow, joyful quilting everyone.

it was worth the effort to randomize all those squares in the border. It's looking wonderful!

Yes, it looks great. You don't seem to have had any trouble with your new colour scheme.
