    Another little quilt finished!

    These fabrics were all from my stash, but I cannot remember where or when or why I purchased this large purple floral! Not my usual color scheme! The inner blocks are called 'antique tile' and I found them in a Quiltmaker magazine awhile ago. I thought they were interesting, so I decided to try them. I like the way the corners of those blocks fit together. I'll probably use them again. Of course, in the magazine the block was 9" square, so I had to mini-ize it.

    I used black thread to SITD in the middle, then used gold thread and a "Borders Made Easy" pattern to do the border. One pic shows the paper on the quilt before I sewed on it. It was pretty easy to use, I will probably use it again. One pic shows the back of the quilt.

    Hope you like it!

    It's beautiful! I've used Borders Made Easy. It worked well but can get pricey.

    I really like the borders made easy and will be doing some searching. do you buy them or download? have alot of tops made but not quilting and trying to take the plunge but love the idea of a pattern to follow.
