    I posted this under the UFO thread as well. Wasn't quite sure if both threads were okay to post for the same item. You can see a bit of yellow around the inside of the border. That was a technique that I just recently saw for making faux piping look. Well, truth be known, if I want to use the piping look again, I will just use piping. This was a bugger to keep even. Since it is so narrow, every wobble showed. At least with real piping, I can use my invisible zipper foot to attach it with. Lesson learned there I guess. Anyhow, it is done, and will be sent off to my friend for her birthday to use in her rustic home.

    Love the plaids in your cabins! What a wonderful gift for your friend. (How long have you been in LG? We have family in that area)

    I moved here from Bend in October of 2009. Quite the culture shock for me. Only 2 LQS and Walmart for fabric. Not much for thrift stores either. Most seem to operate as boutiques. $$$ If you ever get over here to visit your family, then come on by. I'm having a hard time making friends here. Not much to do for my generation. :cry: I stay out of trouble with my quilting.

    Since I started this back in 2006, I had never heard of QAYG. Whatever I choose to work on next I will use that method. Love your kitties! Hope they don't grow up to be holy terrors as mine did. :lol:

    It is beautiful...love the colour combinations and the flash of yellow (even though it did give you a hard time!). Your friend will be really thrilled with it, I'm sure.

    I like the yellow centers! Haven't seen that color used in centers before. Reminds me of bees collecting pollen!
