Mardi Gras top done!

I just finished putting the last border on the Mardi Gras quilt. You can't tell very well in this photo, but the outside border is a Mardi Gras mask fabric. I am so relieved to have this top done, now if I can just get it quilted! I promised it would be done by next Saturday, which I think is doable as long as I don't lose momentum. I have three quilts I want to get quilted before this one, so I'll be spending lots of time with my quilting frame. The three quilts I am doing first are all lap size, so they'll be quick. I want to practice the pattern I am going to use on the Mardi Gras quilt on the lap quilts.

Counting this quilt top I have 7 quilt tops ready for quilting. Maybe I'll get the quilting frame mojo going and get them all quilted! Wouldn't that be great? The Mardi Gras quilt gets binding first though. It's the only one of these with a deadline.

I just realized the quilt border looks crooked in the photo. It's not, it's just bunched up on the floor right there.
