I am looking for the CD that goes with "Karen K. Stone Quilts" book (Eleven of Karen's Most Popular Patterns). I am ready to start the Cinco De Mayo quilt and heard there is a CD that is a great help! It is no longer available from EQuilter. Anybody out there have it?
I'm doing a happy dance now, I've finally finished the quilt top, all the borders, all the ironing, all the picking off loose threads! Since I'm fairly new to quilting (this is only my 6th quilt), I'm quite amazed that I was able to complete the queen size quilt. Now we'll see how long it takes me to long arm quilt it. I haven't been to the quilt shop in 6 months so I have to retake the Pro-Stitcher class. That's just as well since they updated it to make it more user friendly. So the rest of

Have been working on a floral garden rail fence bedspread for about one year. Finally finishing this UFO. It is quilted except the border, deciding what I want to do with that then the binding. Finally have a room so I can actually quilt and not have to pick it up every night.
Today I was able to get on the top and bottom of border 1 and the sides of border 2, ironing as I went. Only mishap was when I pinned the left side border to the bottom of the quilt. Imagine my surprise when I ended up a block short. Pinned the top border. Now I need to sew that one on and do the bottom border and I'll be done the quilt top! Then I'll need to figure out how to quilt the top. At least I've got my backing and batting all ready.

I finally got all the ironing on the quilt top done (without borders) and attached both sides of border 1. Need to do a little more ironing and then will attach top and bottom of border 1. Beginning to feel like I made a lot of progress in the past couple of days.
Sewed 3 long seams today. That's all I had the energy for. Maybe tomorrow I'll iron what I have and work on attaching at least the first border.
I got all my sashing strips sewn together in columns today and attached the columns to the quilt body on at least one side. Tomorrow I can work on the 3 remaining long seams and then start adding the borders. I decided to keep the center of the stars neutral. And I'm liking what I see so far...keep in mind picture was taken before sashes were attached.
Oh, I found my 2 missing border squares. They were on the quilt wall acting

I think the soft green would be pretty. If you chose the red, do you think it would register as your dark color?
I vote for the green. The thing is it is what you like best My light fabric is the same as yours
I swear I counted everything before I started sewing the border. Well to be honest, I counted everything when I was done step 1 which was months ago and maybe 2 of my patches grew legs and walked in the meantime. Or I miscounted how many pieces I sewed together in my top, left, bottom, and right border 1 or border 2. Maybe I'll find the 2 missing patches when I start to sew the borders to the quilt top. And if tonight has taught me anything (other than how to rip out seams again), it has almost
