    dizzy quilt, update 2

    Well, I am just getting happier and happier with this dizzy quilt. I just sewed the blue triangles on. This is my first attempt at blocks on point, and I think I understand how to do it. The quilt no longer makes me dizzy. Thank goodness!! I have two borders to put on it yet, but I am done for the night. Here is where I currently am. (Oh, small white border and larger blue outer border...or at least that is my plan. We'll see if I end up with it that way. )

    I love it! You did a great job. I still haven't done a quilt on point but I really like how they look. Please post showing it when you have the borders on.

    IMHO, borders really make a quilt! I love how yours looks so far, and will be watching for the completed top!!!

    Oh, you all make me feel good. I am pleased at how it is progressing. At least it doesn't make me dizzy, like it did the first time I posted.

    IF you do a quilt on point, make sure your outside triangles are cut with the "on grain" side on the long/diagonal side. If you put the bias side on the long side, you'll drive yourself crazy trying to finish off the edges.

    You're right, it no longer makes you dizzy to look at it. You are doing a wonderful job on this. Keep up the good work.

    This quilt is more gorgeous every time I see it. Now that everything is "lined up", it no longer makes me dizzy either! Your colors are wonderful. I disagree with a former post, politely of course. This quilt needs borders. There is too much "motion" in the quilt to do without borders. The eye needs a place to "rest", and I'm hoping your borders will be more "still" and peaceful, and provide a nice balance to all of the motion in the middle. Just my thoughts. Take them or leave them. Can't wait to see the finished quilt! Be sure to post it. I'll be looking for it!

    I liked this quilt from the first time I saw it and I hope you don't mind if I steal you idea and make one for my granddaughter. Love the color and the simplicity of it.

    Your quilt is coming along great, yes, the outer blue square have really settled it down.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.

    Well, I found the spot marked My Subscriptions, but I didn't know what to do after that. I am basically afraid to mess around, for fear I will mess something up. Can someone guide me on what to do. I have been going to My Profile and clicking on ...oh, I have forgotten what it is called...something like "recent posts" to see new answers to threads I have responded to. I would love to figure out this way of getting there. Thanks if you can help.
