I'm working on my borders for the scrappy quilt I've been working on. There are three borders. I needed 2/3 yd. for the innermost border, and I had a piece of light green fabric that was 25". Yay! Then, I needed 13" of light purple fabric for the second border. I had 14.5" of another piece. I later found out that it wasn't full WOF, but 37". Lucky I had that extra 1 1/2". (That's the width of the border.) Yay, again! Then, I bought 2 yds. of a dark purple batik
And where are my bookmarks? I have not been on this site for 2 months and all has went to hell in a handbasket!

The quilting doesn't show up much on the front so it doesn't take away from the fabric but the back really shows it off.
God Bless and Enjoy your day with Family and Friends!
I thought I would do some on-line shopping before Black Friday and get some more cotton thread for my collection. I just started using the cotton thread since I started quilting and my Bernina 1530 loves this brand of thread and I love my Bernina 1530, so it's all good. Until I started quilting I only had polyester thread in my collection and some of it is a little on the old side. Anyway, my favorite on-line retailer for thread was sold out of two of the shades of blue that I wanted, bummer.
How to make machine binding with a flange. From Charismah
And how to make a binding that can double as a hanging sleeve for small wall hangings. I know I have another version of this technique somewhere, but where or where is it? The miter ends are open and the small rod goes through the top binding? Should be able to figure that out. Anyway, here's the other.

It's Judy Martin's Summer Lake Log Cabin. I bought her book early in the year and this is the one I chose to do out of it, 90% was done with scraps from other projects.
Hope you like it, thanks for looking!

If you remember, I had posted pictures of my fall bargello in progress. http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t163896.html The pattern is Links by Dereck Lockwood.
The pattern of the second quilt is Solstice Stars by Jason Yenter.
The applique is Toni Whitney's pattern Spirit, by the Bigfork Bay Cotton Company. I had to sneak in a picture
I finally got around to updating my avatar. Even though I loved my grandson's picture in the pool, it is obviously too cold for that! Here he is in his Halloween costume. We bought it at Wal-Mart about a month before Halloween and by a couple of days before, we realized he had outgrown it! Grandma's sewing machine to the rescue! I cut it in half below the waist, inserted a piece of fabric donated by a friend that almost matched exactly, pieced it in and then digitized a badge reading Courage
