    Marcia, I may just do that...I have a couple of choices. I really like a couple of the larger Rose patterns that are in the quilt already. I could use the larger one for the outer border (with the thin bead of the brick to separate them)..and then use a different rose pattern for the back...I could order them online..yes, I have found them (they are pricey though :( ) I would like to check out what my LQS has though..I might like something else even better....I guess it depends on the weather and if I get my MUST do chores done :(

    My 2 cents - smidge of brick - a enough buttery yellow to get the size you want - final binding of brick. To me, that would keep the old fashioned look you have going.

    Thats what I was thinking...the brick will really be just a pincord placed between the inner quilt and an outside border. Then I will bind it in the brick.

    Beautiful! I have a hint for making 1/2 square triangles that I've discovered. There's a company called "Ta-Da Triangles". It is a pre-printed interfacing type material (perfect to use with fat quarters). The triangles can be done in many different sizes...you fuse to the wrong side of one fat quarter, then pin (a little) to the other fat quarter...follow the dotted lines while stitching -- VERY quick...it's a continuous line....cut on solid lines and you end up with PERFECT 1/2 square triangles...one sheet (at 2-1/4' ) makes 70 1/2 square triangles! :)

    That's beautiful, Patti! I'm in awe of your HSTs, just how tiny are they? They look miniscule!

    Thankyou so much for the hint. I think when I go to Joann's I'll invest in a package of the Ta Da's.

    You're welcome! They really are a life saver when having to make MANY 1/2 square triangles. You can also check out their website: www.tadatriangles.com. I think if you try them...you'll love them! :)
