Adventures in the life of a gorram nerd

Last night I buckled down and (possibly) finished 10 Shades! I added one more border on the right (Months 9 and 10) and bottom (M 11 and 12).

When Swan made the initial quilt and showed it to Joelee, the quilt shop owner, Joelee said that it was too square and Swan added an optional bottom border. You can see it at the bottom of the pattern available here. I’m still deciding if I want to add that or not… as of right now, I’m leaning towards yay.

Here is a close up of one of the star blocks in the bottom. I nicknamed it “Ninja Star”. It was good practice in doing partial seams which I usually avoid. Our new BOM is all partial seaming to put the blocks together, so I can’t avoid partial seams much longer.
