Spider Web Part 2 and 3

You know that place in a quilt where it can look like a hot mess?  This quilt got to that place after several hours.  I kept at it though until I got to this place.
Everything was sewn together, pressed, and trimmed, ready to sew together.
I decided early on that I wasn't going to try to make every seam match.  I was hoping that the centers would match a little better, but am not too unhappy with the results.
I decided to use some of my favorite orange fabric for the next part, but it was too plain.
Dresden plates!  Yes.  Just the thing.  So what next?  I found three fabrics to audition.  First, I used some of my favorite Alexander Henry fabric for a border.
I liked them all, but decided to go with the top one.  Hopefully, I will get time to get back to this over the weekend.  In the meantime, I have a few other pieces I am working on. I will post them a little later.
Joyful quilting, everyone.

Miki, this is growing into GORGEOUS! Love the "Safari Burst" border (will definitely copy you for something, somewhen), and a big thumbs up for that top choice of big corners.

Hi Miki, can you please give an update on your PQ diet experience since the diet has ended? I've seen testimonials and have thought about trying it, but I want to know the long term effects, does the weight stay off, or is it like most diets in which you end up weighing more in the long-term end?
