I put borders on the half yard challenge and the top is done. I also did mitered corners which I haven't done in years. The second pic shows some orange fabric (different than the one used in the top) for the backing. I don't know when or how I'll get it quilted. Things I learned: Plan ahead. Black print can be a bold color (rather than the background I thought it would be). Two bold fabrics, out of four, are too much. A really bold color, such as this orange, only needs tiny pieces. A definite repeated pattern is better for some quilts. It is better to use more than four fabrics. Mitered corners need practice. Use a decent sewing machine. I can learn from results I'm very unhappy with. Just hope I can remember these lessons.
I'm not sure about the exact date, but I was blogging on Mismatched Quilter by January 2006. I lost that month in a computer problem and was down with major computer problems later in the year. Also down for some time with my knee surgery and then there were travel times. So I was surprised to see I had posted 260 times from 2/06 to 2/07. Most were quilting related too. Now if I only was that prolific with the sewing. Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming friends this year. VBS
