    I'm new to this group. Did you notice my avatar? I get creative. It actually has rope stitched around the border, and a seahorse medallion in the center. (OK, I thought it was a good way to hide the points not quite right).

    btw my first fabric choice was not "right" so I changed it and quilted over it, so the points really do have more dimension.

    Thx Reggie! In a diff topic I'm talking about my new project. I'm making a lap throw for a guy in my painting class. It's for his wife. He will make me a salad bowl of wood in exchange. Anyhow, the topic was paper piecing, and there are some good tutorials there.

    I really like this group already!

    Can I ask what pattern you used? It's lovely and different than any I've seen before.
