I finished the 2nd of these tops yesterday - they went together really fast (at least for newbie me!) and it sure helped cutting them both out at the same time. The pattern is 9 Patch and Stripe from Eleanor Burns' Still Stripping After 25 Years book (the show number is 2505.) I haven't decided on a border, if any, yet; they are already 43" square.
I still have issues, but I'm pretty amazed at how much better each project I do comes out. Guess I'll just have to practice, now won't I? :lol:
