Well worked all day yesterday on my Christmas quilt as you go....sewed three more blocks and quilted about 12 of them. Now for the putting together. Still debating if I want to make this bigger still. Here's a pict. Should I just have it as a throw?

I think I finally have it cut to mitre the border correctly, but it took a lot of sketches and measurements to get there. I hope to sew this afternoon during naptime.
I have 3 more dishcloths to knit and I have 8 potholders to make. I'm going to start cutting out the potholders this weekend and get started piecing the tops. I can sew them up at night during the week too. I've been either knitting or sewing a little each night to keep up with my projects. When DD comes over to sew, I end up helping her so much I can't do my own projects, so I lose about 4 or 5 hours on the weekend of good sewing/knitting time.
I was worried about my Bernina
I have 4 pkges of minkee charm squares. I need to cut some into triangles. Has anyone used "best press" spray with minkee? I was thinking it would help hold the edges from stretching. thanks

This is my string quilt top I just finished sewing together. I am appliquing the flower etc.
I will put a 3" string border around the edge, then about a 5" black marble border around that.
Another question: should I bind all that in a color, picked out ofthe strings, like red, or green or yellow?
Or should I sew a lot of strings together end to end and use
