God daughter's Quilt Progress

I know, I've been working on these forever and you're probably all bored of them. Or maybe I'm just projecting. Anyway, I am now half way done these quilt blocks! Once I'm done them it will be pretty quick to complete the quilt tops, pin, quilt and bind them. I'll be done all the tedious squaring off and matching points part.

So now I'm wondering if they're too busy. Maybe I should put a 2"border of cream around each block to calm it down a little bit. This is really your call, Sharon. That would look something like this (but it would be less bright than the white and cleaner than the carpet):

In other, related news, we finally gave up on our evil central vac system and bought a vaccuum. It should be delivered by the end of this week. I'm excited because then I can actually stain remove the upstairs carpet and pick up all the cat hair and litter dust on the downstairs carpet. And its got one of those allergy filters, so it might even improve Andrew's breathing a little bit. If you don't hear from me for a while, you know its because I'm busy scrubbing carpets and vaccuuming vents.

For what it's worth, I think it would look really nice with a border. And on the subject of allergies, we live in a really dusty building, and a neighbour with allergies has a little air filter (it's a small plug-in appliance, looks kind of like a humidifier) that she says helps some.
