Progress on Nifty Thrifty

I really wanted to get the Nifty Thrifty quilt top finished in March, but it just didn’t happen.  Thursday evening everything except the outer border was completed, but I was too tired to continue.

Those yellow blocks really pop out, don’t they?

I wanted to lighten up the quilt, so I used light fabric for the inner border.  The outer border will be different lengths of all the gray & blue fabrics that was used in the blocks.  The plan is to use as much of the shirt fabric as I can.

I also have two more quilts planned from the recycled shirts, but I will be making them as leaders/enders.  I had better get busy – those borders won’t sew themselves.  Does anyone have a border elf at their house that they could lend me?  Thanks
