I finally got myself into gear and finished the beach quilt top. It's pretty big (66 x 81in) so for the quick photo I draped it over one of the sofas and onto the freshly-cleaned floor.
I really like the way the border turned out. I'll sandwich and start quilting tomorrow. I usually bind my beach quilts in a bright stripe, but I think this one might be better with plain navy - or I do have a white, navy and mid-blue diagonal stripe which I'll audition as well once the quilting is done.
A week on from her accident, and Eleanor's recovering nicely; we have a follow-up appointment tomorrow just to be sure.
