Then I added some plain red small borders to rest the eye between triangles and square-to-com.
Then I read Melody's posts about Quilt-As-You-Go borders. Why, I could do that with this whole quilt. Round Robins are just adding one border after another!
So I was distracted by the need to quilt what I had for the middle already before moving on.
Here's where I am on that right now.
But I just couldn't wait to add a border in the quilt as you go method.
This is how you do it:
Then you flip the two border fabrics over that seam and press.
Front has grown by one border side [black and white check].
And the back has grown by one border side [darker green].
Today we are leaving for a week of vacation at a cottage near South Haven, Michigan. We will be nine family members together. I'm on duty with the oldest grandchild to make dinner tonight. After that I'm going to enjoy the dinners cooked by other teams of two.
