    My top is finished and ready to donate to my church group to sandwich, tie, sew down the binding from the back, and donate. It is 71” by 77”. I chose not to use the final 3 borders so I could make it rectangular and have it within the parameters of my church’s measurements.

    2 more days of sewing since school has been cancelled through Wednesday. -28 actual temps with wind chills between -40 and -60. I loved having those ‘surprise’ days when I was teaching but I think I like them even more as a substitute teacher. . I just am sad for the children that may only get a good meal at school but safety from the winter elements comes first.

    Love the soft blue and the solid borders around the quilt, retiredteacher. Looks great. It really calms this quilt down. Good job.

    Well done, retiredteacher! I think your quilt has the look of an impressionist painting.

    I have finished putting all the spinning star blocks together and I'm almost done with the orange string blocks, so here is what it looks like on my design floor.

    Connie, it looks lovely. I like the idea of no-seams borders for the outside edge of the quilt. It seems more stable to me. I live in Woodbury, so I know what you are talking about with the weather!

    Sync, yours is looking great. The colors you used have a real depth and richness.

    Snyc: You are making great progress! So pretty!

    Thanks for all of the compliments.

    I finished my flimsy a few days ago in Bonnieís colors. I like it but have to admit it doesnít look like mine........itís so very bright! My husband was sort of speechless when he looked at the finished quilt......thought a couple of minutes and said he likes it better when I pick my own colors. I ended up putting it away for now. At the moment I donít have a home for it and it takes up less space in flimsy form!

    I learned so much making it and have already used her Bonus Buddy technique to design and finish rather quickly a table quilt that everyone in that family is enjoying!

    Looking good Sync. I'm with audsgirl, if I did it again, I would not have the 4 pieced borders. That's where the trouble came in. The green sawtooth one is where I think mine went wrong.
