Moving right along...

Selecting more fabric from Southampton Quilts... 
The fabrics below are for the borders.  I like the green, but I'm on the fence about which blue to use.

This blue is mixed with a touch of red on a gray field
                     This blue is consistently navy blue and black
This small square will be a window. If I hold it up to the light, I can see the pattern lines through the fabric and can trace them to the front of the fabric.  Eventually I'll stitch them.  I'm basically using my living room window as a light box.

cutting out pieces!  Each one has a pattern piece ironed to the back

The pieces will eventually fit together like a puzzle.  I lay them on the pattern to check the fit.
