    Finished the borders tonight! I'm really happy with this one and it's for my bed so I'm keeping it.

    After a design change because I didn't have enough of two of the fabrics it developed into one I like even more than the first. I don't have any ideas about quilting yet but maybe something that looks like the paisley swirls in the border fabric.

    Beautiful! It's a keeper for sure! Do you know what the block is called with the large triangle block in the middle?

    Not sure which block you mean. The one on the left is one I drew in EQ6 just because I knew the shape I needed. I did a quick look in EQ6 libraries and don't see anything like it. It's just a cross between a HST and a Four X in EQ6. The other is called Sugar Bowl in EQ6 but I can't find it by that name anywhere else.

    Now there's a pattern I've never seen. It looks like very classy envelopes! It's just beautiful!! I'd love to see a close up of the fabrics. Ooops--never mind I just scrolled up and saw some.

    I can't wait to see it quilted! Glad it's a keeper!

    You've never seen it because this is it's debut! :-P Hmmm, it does remind me of fancy stationery, I have some in pink roses.

    I'm sitting here thinking of names... Victorian Sweets? Victorian Letter? Then I think, French Envelope? Uhhh.... not that one!! :lol: How many people do you think would know what a French Envelope is?

    I created the pattern so there's no place to get it. I am working on writing it up though it's very simple. I just wouldn't write it up like many patterns would be done and saying to "cut 10 7/8" squares..." for a 10 1/2" half square triangle. I cut them at 11 1/4", sew them together, cut apart, and then square it to 10 1/2"

    I do that to most any pattern I use, make parts a little larger. I did one that had hundreds of 3 1/2" HSTs and there was no way I was going to do that many and think that they were all going to be the same size. I did the squares at 4 1/4" and squared them up after sewing.

    That will work for me. I don't like doing the small one either.
