After i had to make an additional 8 sunflower hexies yesterday (miscalculation) I was finally able to layout the border this morning.
Since today is going to be oppressively hot, I hope to work on and finish the last three butterflies. Should be able to start to applique everything down tomorrow. Going to add a brown inner border and then a yellow outer and I can begin hand quilting this one. Woohoo. After 9+ years unfinished, this one is almost done.
