    I finished Dawn Hendricks border this weekend. I hope you like it! I tried to keep the scrappy look while giving it some continuity. This was even more of a challenge than I had anticipated.

    Macbroo - I heavily starched the border since it was all made on the bias. This way it will hold its shape when you add to it. Also, it made it much easier to square up.

    Also macbroo, I love what you did to my center. Thank you!

    Dawn's block is awsome! I am so looking forward to getting my hands on that one! That is going to be sooooooo fun!

    Can I ask what its new dimensions are? I've already got the image loaded up in my EQ5 and it would help me get a realistic idea of what I can do with it.

    Thanks.

    I wasn't actually completely sure what I was going to do with Cordelias. I had a friend stop by and she wanted to see what I was working on. Asked her WHICH ONE? lol
    She saw the square from Cordelia and asked me about it. After checking out what I had, she gave me the answer I was looking for!
    Guess I needed a new pair of eyes

    It's great when there's a "fresh" set looking at it.
    I didn't even think of doing what she suggested.

    As you can see, I just used bleached muslin and wonder under for the applique with a little bit done by hand. Nothing specail went in to it. The placemnet of the "star" flowers gave me fits--they needed to be in about the sme spot on each side. One idea would be to do meandering stems and random flowers, but anything will be fine.
    I know how you feel though. I agonized forever over Tricia's. I couldn't decide what to do and changed my mind every 30 seconds. :lol: :lol:
    I am still not sure that I made the right choice, but hubby says it pops. Coming from him, I'd say that's pretty good. Usually all I get is uh huh when I ask him for an opinion. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: But he even threw the word Wow when I showed it to him--I had all the pieces laid out on the bed in the sewing room and called him in for a look see. I hope to finish the piecing next weekend.
    I'll get some pictures then.

    Cordelia - I have no idea what the size is. Sorry, I never even thought to measure. One of the problems I had was the center is 16 squares one way and 18 squares the other, so the center is a little oblong and not square. Anyway, you just have to plan on something that is not the exact same on all 4 sides. That was my biggest challenge!

    I enjoyed the challenge and really had to use my brain cells to figure out what to do. I changed my mind several times, then just got an idea into my head and winged it. I had problems with the corners and ripped them out 3 or 4 times, then went with the plain kona snow. I think that turned out the best looking and was pleased with the final look.

    Dawn - I am glad you like it. :D :mrgreen: :D I do too!!!

    To everyone else - you are my biggest fans! hahaha Thanks for being so kind. So far, every block on this site is wonderful and brings on new inspiration!

    Ok, I've got the 1st part of Cordelia's done, now just need to finish up the 2d part of it.
    Just playing with the blocks I have, turning them round and round to see which way I like the best.
    Hubby walked in and says...Oh Honey! That square is beautiful! Are you making more to finish a BIG quilt? lol
    Had to tell him that I didn't make it and it was going to go in the mail once I finish my part of it. He hung his head and walked out of the room.
    I think he really likes it! Ya think?

    Terri, the block I did was from Marcia Hohn's site, Blocks Galore. It's a biggie. If you go to her site and look under the heading blocks over 16" or so, it's in that list, the Carpenter's Wheel.

    I used 3.5" thangles. I'm actually making it again for a wall hanging because I played around so much with blocks and colors that I've got enough to make another one.

    I'm also making matching pillows -- though not in the carpenter wheel pattern, the bambury cross pattern.

    Well I am now starting over from square one :mrgreen: Don't worry this is only the 3rd time yet. Ok I am not finding this as easy as I thought it would be.

    I have Dawn's scrappy center (to remind everyone) lol It's even worse now that I have the pic of Mareliba's to see. She did such a wonderful job.

    btw Mareliba the oblong shape has given me fits too. I think I have it figured out now.

    lol I am having fun though ...... :)

    I've decided to watch ya'll. I've recently re-enlisted with this site after a long hiatus and look what ya'll are doing! Can't wait to see the finished product and I hope you decide to do it again as I would like to get in on one myself.

    Oh, no worries Cordelia. I'm having fun making squares to use in ANOTHER quilt I will be making, I think.
    I just cannot sew a straight line or cut one to save my life at the moment.
    I think what I'm going to do is just cut the squares bigger, then cut them down to size. I layed in bed last night and that was all I could think about. Then the bed started rumbling...guess it was God's way of telling me to put all ideas to bed and get some sleep. (the rumbling was an earthquake,,,just a small one)

    Wow!!!This is the most interesting and busy spot on the forum...I am so impressed with all of the ideas coming together ..I noticed that SewHappy had received Vicki's beautiful appliqued center and she was asking for ideas for the border..Been racking my poor brain for ideas but keep coming back to peach and green for the accent colors..
