    Smile I wanted to share the quilt boarder I made with the Creative Grids Trapezoid

    This was a supper fun class, and I found the ruler to be user friendly. This baby quilt is for my DH's nephew and his wife for their new arrival.

    BTW, the red looking squares are really a raspberry color. My camera distorted the color.

    I have always done that with a foundation fabric that has the lines printed but it's great to know that it can be done without and still turn out great. I hate always having to buy the foundation fabric. Would be money ahead to purchase the ruler!!

    That's a happy little quilt.

    I've done the French Braid border on quils. Great way to use up scraps, too.
    My best is the least I can do.

    That is so pretty! The border really makes the quilt. How hard was it to make?

    Great border. I do this one just by using strips but there is a lot of waste. I will have to look into this ruler!
