    Wow! Iceblossom, I hope you are safe with the fires. I have been watching them on the news. 2020 has been a bad year for all of us. I hope 2021 will be better.

    LeeAnn, I mailed the next center to you this morning. I was downtown running errands and the post office was on my list. Please let me know when I gets there safely.

    givio, your center has not let me know what it needs yet but I have it hanging in my sewing room. Sometimes, I have to look at it a while before it reveals the next step.

    Here is a peek at what I have started for jaba's border.... I am debating between just a piano key or alternating piano key with a block I found called "crow's beak"....kind of want to go simple, but then I keep seeing all your great borders and don't want to disappoint. Thoughts?

    By the way, as this popped up and I see my RR quilt I just want to say I *love* the piano key border on my quilt and the "stop" it gave for the eye before the next border was added!!!!

    Carriem, I like the break from the darker row. It gives a good break. : )

    My feelings on that are that you only get one chance to put your artistic input into each of these quilts. Just do your best effort and I'm sure it won't disappoint.

    you won’t disappoint me, love your idea for the next border. I like to have those “eye resting spots” in quilts, sometimes they get to busy in my opinion. I think I fell a little harder than what I thought. I’m still very sore and the weak legs have not gone away. This break from quilts is good right now. Hopefully another day or two I’ll feel safe going downstairs. Looking forward to getting a round from Macy.
    I need to get lots of fabric put away so I have a clean work space, like a fresh start

    It's fun watching how all the quilts are coming together. I like looking at all of them, and sometimes I don't even realize I'm looking at mine, so I may not comment as much about it as a should. I am loving this whole process, and it will be fun when mine makes it's way back to me so I can see it in it's full glory. Each round adds a different dimension to the quilt, and it's very fun.
