    That looks great and I love the yellow with the blue and white. Those are classic and timeless combinations, kind of French Country style.

    owww, chihuahua! .... hope this doesn't slow you up too much!
    The quilt is coming along quite nicely. That yellow is just such a classy splash of color! I would never have thought of it, but maybe next time

    Love Your Quilt and the border is great too~

    Next time you do that? Lets hope you've learned not to iron fingers andy more... Put toothpaste on it! It cools it right away and it won't blister. I use to work with electronic's and soldered for years, I was always burning my poor fingers! OUCH FOR SURE~ I kept a small tube in my drawer and it sounds silly I know but it really works! Hope you don't have to try it, but just in case keep it in mind.

    Very nice.

    Something else that works is putting mustard on the burn. Got that from "peoplespharmacy.com".

    What a beautiful quilt it will be! Love the stars. They are one of my favorites!
    The colors are gorgeous! I'm not good at doing an on point layout. But I love to see others!

    Can't wait to see it done! I have to stand on the step stool when I take pics of my stuff on my table. Can't get a good enough angle any other way. Just be sure you don't fall off the coffee table!!

    That would just add insult to injury wouldn't it! LOL

    The finger is much better this morning, I was worried it would get the tight feeling and not want to bend, but it's perfectly usable. *whew*

    I keep repeating myself, I'm REALLY pleased with how this is coming together. It's the straightest quilt I've ever done, it's sitting really flat and just going together beautifully. I put the pattern into EQ, and have been cutting the borders exactly at what the print out says, and they fit! I was out by less than 1/8th on one side, and the other sides were perfect.

    It's a fluke, of course! LOL

    Blue Chicken--I like the setting and colors you chose for your star block exchange blocks!! The yellow is really pretty with it and the border is wonderful with it.

    Of course, by the time I'd pressed the seam it was far too late. *sigh*

    I have some aloe on it now.
    Next time put an ice cube on it right away. Usually takes away the burn N the pain.
