Mrs Vigors - next step

It is amazing how quickly this quilt is coming together.  I now have all 4 of the border pieces done, and have started cutting up for the next border, the "dog tooth" border.  Last night I got out one of my boxes of "lights" and cut 36 triangles from the one box.

 This border will be 3 1/2" wide, 18 pieces long on each side, so I need 18 light fabrics and 18 dark fabrics.  These are some of the lights.

 They all came out of this box.  I put the box on my side table as I was watching TV, and with my sandpaper board on my lap, just picked out one fabric at a time, and drew around the template.  Took me about 2 hours to do 36 triangles.  TV is rally bad at the moment, so nothing lost there.
This is tonight's box of light fabrics.  Won't be quite so easy when I have to do the dark fabrics, as I will need to use several boxes for them.

I am doing lots of preparing as my sister and niece arrived for a visit later this week, and will not have time to do it while they are here, but will still have time to sew as we sit about.  It is not quite so hot now - great relief.
