Finally finished the round robin quilt square



Border done on Amy's Quilt Square

Phew, finally done the border for Amy's quilt square. It was suppose to be a 5 inch border ( 5 1/4 inches) but it is 5 1/2 inches. I figure that is close enough. I put on a plain border with mitered corners in a cream colour and then I put on the arrows border, I then finished up with another plain border in cream. I think it looks really nice. I mitred the corners on all three of the rows that I did. For some strange reason I find that doing a mitered corner is easier than doing a regular corner.


Non-Quilting News

My father and I re-arranged my basement today and have set it up as an exercise area. I now have my treadmill facing out into the centre of the room (instead of facing the wall...lol. How inspiring was that?? LOL) And we moved my TV into that room from the sewing room. I never really watched TV while I was sewing and I figured this might motivate me to actually get up off the couch and doing some walking.

Nice quilting square. Especially like the mitered borders. Did you have anyone pressing for you? I find that when I quilt it sure speeds up the sewing process.

As a matter of fact, I do have someone who irons for me while I am quilting...lol. She sometimes gets a little cranky, but considering she works for cheap, I accept the crankiness. LOL.

I am so proud of you!! Mitered Borders!! I have only tried that once, turned out beautiful, but stressed me to the max.

VERY proud on the re-org of the basement. Now remember to use the mill, you need to dedicate at least a half hour a day ok!!

PS, cheap labour...will they work for me?

You have taught me well. :-)

OK, so now that the basement is organized I just have to get my butt down there to do the treadmill. Tonight I have an excuse I was on a hunt for Wii Fit...didn't find it though. So tomorrow it is treadmill time...and Wii boxing..oh my gosh I love that...and it is a bit of a workout too...lol.
