Brownie quilt progress

The central Brownie now has socks and the back of his cap appliquéd. Started the embroidery with one shoe. One more row of square within a square blocks and the first border will be complete as well. The four triangles with the papercut hands designs are next. I decided to do a half square triangle border around those rather than the sawtooth appliquéd border that I'd originally designed. I know I would have trouble keeping that flat and if I'm going to make the July 1st deadline for the challenge, I need some time to quilt it, too. We have four weeks and two days of school left. My goal is to have the top pieced by then so I have roughly two weeks to quilt and bind it.

EOGs (end-of-grade testing) begin this week for us. Wishing you a less hectic week in your lives.
