    From Don-isewman--New quilt & new pictures

    Here is a quilt that is 98% done. All I have to do is make the border. On the outside, I will put a 3", off white strip around the quilt. Like whats in the background of the quilt I'm posting. The single block is the pattern, in the book, I used. I didnt use solid sq's. I used a 4 patch(sqs).. Around the off white strip of the quilt, I will use the 4 patch, and then around the 4 patch, will be another--3-4-5" off white strip. The pattern is called "Song & Dance"-- out of a book by Judi Martin's Ultimate Book of quilt block pattern. Take care everyone, and WELCOME to the new members. Don-isewman

    Looking at your quilt hung on the garage door, it resembles stained glass in a church window. Lovely!
