Update on the Alphabet quilt in Wool

I am thrilled to be able to finally see the end coming to the Alphabet quilt in Wool that I have been working on since last summer.  The border is on, and I am now adding some trim between the main part of the quilt and the border.  I have auditioned the trim here to see if I liked it.  The trim is two wool yarns that I had in my stash that I ply-ed together and then ply-ed that on itself so that it is four yarns for thickness to cover where I joined the border.

This trim also helps to hold the border on because I hand-sewed it on and the sewing goes through the border and the part with the letters.  

Here is a closeup of the hand embroidery.
