    I put one side of the border on just to see what it looked like. I was really pleased, up until the very last section when I ironed my little finger!

    Still standing on the coffee table.

    Oh, ouch Blue - do you have an aloe vera plant? That's what I put on burns, works a treat! Won't tell hubby you stood on the COFFEE TABLE!!!!! Naughty girl! :wink:

    PS Should have said - loving that border! And the yellow is JUST enough to set off the blue and white without over powering it! :D

    Man it hurts! I kept thinking "i'll just finish this bit then I'll put it under the cold tap".

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

    I have some aloe on it now.

    I'm far too old to fall for that! lol

    Unless it's a Vodka Kiss ... that would make it feel better.

    I'm pleased with the border... it's a bit much but not a lot too much, I like it. :-)

    Beautiful quilt! It might make you feel less klutzy to know that I chopped off the tip of my middle finger with my rotary cutter Sunday- :shock: -kind of makes it difficult to type.

    OUCH!!! I think I'd still be crying! Man, that must hurt!
    I have a morbid fascination with my finger now... it's the last knuckle on the little finger that I burned, and it's blistered, so it looks quite odd.

    Even steam is bad enough!

    I'll add another three inch blue border after this one, and that will be it. I've been laying it out on my bed and it's going to look stunning. This is the first queen size quilt I've ever done, it wasn't supposed to be this big! LOL
    Absolutely no idea how I'm going to quilt it. It will fit on my frame, but I'm worried now I won't do it justice. I'm still new to free motion quilting.

    Your star quilt is absolutely gorgeous. Love that yellow with the blue and white and love your border.

    Sorry about your finger - I usually just steam mine.

    I hope your finger is healing fast What a beautiful quilt. The burn was worth it, huh? Everyone makes such beautiful quilts and my list of quilts to make keeps growing and growing. Like you say, I may never die.
