    Update on Brown and Teal Quilt....

    Remember this quilt? I changed the border to a solid brown and it seemed to have made a difference. The back is pieced with the left over fabric, and I made two pillow cases in brown, with a teal print cuff. My friend is quite happy with the result. Thanks for all your candid comments and suggestions, and for looking.

    Changing the borders makes it look like a different quilt. Both versions are very pretty!!

    Great job! The border change really made a difference.

    Nice quilt and I love the colors. I want to make a brown and teal quilt. The colors are so pleasing together.

    I sashed a 10 inch square then sewed 2 different blocks together diagonally, then cut apart. Missouri Star Quilt has a tutorial called the Magic Square. Check it out. I found it very easy to follow.

    I didn't see it the first time around but I love it! And thanks for the tip about the Missouri Star Quilt tut for the "Magic Square". I'll definitely check it out.

    I don't know which is the "before" but I like them both.

    Turned out fabulous. Reminds me of shafts of light. The blues and browns play very nice together!
