WIP Friday! Week 43 - Mrs K's layout....

Well after me dittering about with different layout possibilities the other week here, I ended up going back to my original plan of triangles the same print. Which leads us to the above quilt top..... I have 16 blocks of 2 triangles sewn together so am thinking that might be enough for a runner for the Kindy Teacher Assistant?! I am going to add a 3 or 4 inch boarder of just a plain colour, maybe the darker green in some of the leaves and then that is it, a simple lap quilt for Mrs K. Of course I don't have anything plain and suitable in my stash, not in pastel tones anyway, so on Monday after work before getting the girls from daycare, there are 3 fabric shops on the way home, I'm going to visit them all!
