    Thanks for all the comments... and for the first aid! :-) Next time I will not be ignoring the burning sensation in favour of pressing just one more seam. lol

    Love that border. The yellow is perfect to set off the block. Also for that burn just a light coat of toothpaste (yes toothpaste) The mintiness pulls the heat out of the burn. It feels hotter for a few minutes but after that the burning is gone and you don't realize you even had the burn. Been using that for years and it works.

    Really! I hadn't heard of that one. My partner had heard the mustard trick, he reckons his mother swore by that too.

    Beautiful border! Yes, you have to watch out for those irons or they will get you. I know......I have a burn on the inside of my arm where I touched the tip of the iron reaching for something.....don't even remember what I was reaching for now. I always keep a bottle of Aloe Vera Gel in the refrigerator for burns. Sure does make the hurt go away.

    Oh, I've done that one before too and that hurts!

    I'm stalled on the quilt top, I want to finish it with a plain blue border and I've run out of the blue. It's on order, and should be here next week.

    I L-O-V-E your quilt top...and that border...you do good work!!! I really like samplers! And blue [of any shade] always was my favorite!
    You know Blue, it might be the first time [for ironing your finger and that really does hurts ] but will probably not be the last. Been there, done that. :oops: I'm old school and still iron a lot, even permanent press. - a vodka kiss sounds good but you're never too old for kisses to help :wink:

    Love your quilt top. Blue is my favorite color and I think the boarder is just right. Sorry about your finger! I was ironing a blouse getting ready for work one morning ( no top on) and I hit my stomach with iron! Always wore clothes after that! LOL Kiss will definitely help and vodka can't hurt.

    It's good to know of all of these home remedies for burns. After all, the kitchen is the most likely place to get a burn. I'll say that I use the aloe vera plant all the time, but have never heard of mustard, soy sauce, or vanilla. Like I said -- Good to know. Never know when you might need them.

    One more comment about the blue and white blocks. I just look and look and look at them. They almost look as though they are in a fog or a shadow. Lovely. I like the softness of them. And the yellow just adds a pop and interest that is striking.

    Ouch!! Take care of that finger.

    On the bright side, the quilt looks great! Love all the star blocks!

    Finger, what finger? ;-)

    That was last month I ironed my finger, it's well healed and forgotten now. And I'm pleased to say (touch wood) I haven't done it again!

    And the quilt hasn't progressed any.... I'm waiting on more of the blue to arrive so I can put the last border on. Typical, it's on order from the company who is the slowest out of all of them!
