    Borders - none. This may be my first borderless

    What a hectic May this has been - back from California (Disneyland) and then off to our house in Pacific City. We had a heat pump installed and I had to be there. This was all done on this past Tuesday and we had company that following weekend.

    A good quilting friend of mine, and her husband, ride in a fundraiser bike ride called Reach the Beach and it ends in Pacific City. It's always nice to have them there for the weekend.

    I spent the first few days of this week ...

Very cheap!! to print on them I use a piece of copy paper that I printed one block diagram on (I use the same one over and over).
    Place the FB on the copy paper shiny side down and with your iron just run across the top edge of the FP. It loads really well into your printer and off you go!

    Well my sister just yarned some of the quilt. She wants me to quilt around the applique stars to give it more punch, so am going to see if I can do that today. as time for graduation and her trip is ticking away. I just bought Quilting Large Quilts on a Small Machine, froms and I love her teaching. She teaches 4 different ways. Takes the fear away. Anyway, when I get done, will put another pict. on here.
  9. Dear Jane giving me fits!! C4, Ls1 triangle & remake of B12

    LS1 was fun and time consuming BUT NOT AS TIME CONSUMING AS C4!!!! 11 hours on this one! Mainly because I outsmarted myself and was too stubborn to remake it! My bright idea was to inset the seams on the outside corners instead of using 2 pcs of background fabric. Only took 2 hours
