    Thanks for the link QE; any one of those would add length in a simple way and help balance the quilt at the same time.

    I haven't used any of those yet and keep them in mind for "sometime"!!! I'm tired of plain old borders that are just strips of fabrics! Why not be a little more dramatic in the borders? Yes, some quilts do not want or need that ... but some it could be a good addition!

    Poor Anael--she doesn't know what can of worms she opened when she said "I need to...."

    Two more ideas. Both are 50 x 80 before bindings. First one uses 4" blocks in one border and 4" borders all around. But what if you extend your 8" blocks on the "ends" of the quilt and use a "border block" such as this pyramid block? The second option would be quicker. Blocks can be flipped or different border blocks could be used as well. OKay, OKay, I'll quit now and get some sewing done!

    Isn't this fun quilting together!
    A real live virtual Quilting Bee!!!

    Heaven forbid if we all got going on Skype together ... not to worry, I don't have the technology! but wouldn't that be something.


    OKSGlad ... very effective with the pyramid blocks. I've never heard them called that, but it does make sense. With the right fabrics, it'd really get a roll going! Good designs!!

    Anael ... are you sorry you told us yet?

    You're welcome carriem

    No, QuiltE, I'm still not sorry I like the border ideas oksewglad has designed, only problem is I added the first border already! I will do the math later today (it's 2 am here!) and will try and get some sleep now
    Thanks oksewglad!!

    Yes Anael ... it's about time you go to bed!
    My eyes are closing and it's only eleven.

    With some sleep
    , OKSGlad, will probably design it again for you. Leave her the measurements of the white border .... I know she likes "playing" with that EQ program!

    The white borders are 2" unfinished. I remember I once made flying geese to lengthen a quilt. It's one of my UFO's, still to be quilted but here's the picture: Name:  BOM2011 003 (760 x 570).jpg

    It was last year's BOM on the HGTV board, called Hole in the Barndoor. It was fun making the blocks!

    Anael...your creating so much enthusiasm with your PC project. Your Hole in the Barn Door quilt it beautiful and I really like the pyramid border that you did. I have a couple of projects ready to sew together but maybe I should have OkSewGlad do her EQ magic before I start. That seems to be a pretty cool tool!

    Carriem, I think you still can get the directions on HGTV board, you have to register and go to crafts, quilting & Needlework and ask there. You can design your own, it's a 12" finished churn dash block with a 6" finished block in the middle.

    Gardnergal, maybe we should hire oksewglad as our quilt designer?

    Oh you make me blush, Anael! I like the option with the white triangle up against the blue squares--to me it "Crowns" the quilt. it draws attention to the blocks by pulling the eye away from the blues.
    The FG border on the Churn dash quilt is fantastic. Carrie can't you just see this quilt in the KT or Jo Morton color palettes? HMM let me go to EQ and see what happens...
    GGal, what do you have started that needs a finish? (As if OKSG doesn't have any UFO's of her own!!)

    Oooooooooh!! Anael ... beautiful! Your HITBD/CD is ever so nice! An interesting way to frame up finished blocks. Are you going to keep it? Or is it destined for the Day Care Centre too?

    The colours look so much nicer in today's photos!! ITA on the white against the quilt centre. Helps frame and creates a step into what's next. Which brings me to ask ... what will you do after those are all on? Regular strip borders?

    Thanks for the compliments on the Barn Door I don't know, I thought about donating the HITBD quilt to the day care centre too, I have to ask how many they can use. My kids don't want quilts, that's for sure

    The colours in the last 2 pictures are the real colors. I think I will do a regular strip border in the darker blue fabric.

    Oh Anael, that BOM quilt is stunning! Great colors and I can hardly wait to see what you do with the quiliting. I love the nap quilts you are working on too. You are sure moving along fast on those. I'm sure the recipients will dearly love them.

    Anael, You're a generous soul!! I'm sure all will be more than thankful for your kindnesses.

    I'm sure they will gladly accept all that you wish to share with them. Because they are destined for a public facility, chances are they are laundered perhaps more regularly than we would at home. Plus institutional laundry does not get the gentler care we do. Thus, they will show their wear much faster and need replacing more often.

    Although, this might create some jealousy as to who gets the "pretty ones" ... instead of the boring browns!!!
    You'll have your work cut out for you!!



    I was sitting here this morning sketching out a CD pattern, before I saw the HITBD/CD .... and smiled!!!

    Yes
    OKSGlad ... email on its way with a request!

    ThanksJeanie, QuiltE and dublb (and all my other friends)

    I could ask to give the quilts to me to wash them. I think the elderly only use them as covers after lunch so I hope they won't get dirty that fast! I will do the borders tomorrow.

    Dublb, I hope everything is ok with your apprentice and your adopted grandbaby

    I have a mystery quilt ready to sash as well as the BOM that I'm doing through QB. I was concerned that I would not come out with a good balance so while it was in the design wall, I completed all of the blocks and did run out of the main fabric like I was afraid of so I made do. The reveal isn't until after Christmas so there is no hurry actually with either one. I have the FWS to complete while I trot along in this pony ride and I'm planning to start an appliqué project so I have handwork to do in the evenings. Can you tell I'm totally immersed in quilting? My DH is occupied during the day so my sewing room is where I hang out after the essential housekeeping is done.
