BORDERS FOR MY QOV QUILT

Last night I got the borders on my QOV quilt, maybe I can sandwich it sometime today?

Remember to visit Gene's blog today. He shows you a great way to make stars and his own design.

I had to squeeze this top in between my dinning room and living room because my Christmas quilt is taking up the other side of the dinning room. As soon as we get a button, we will let you in on the theme of our BMB (bi-monthly blocks).

Yes, I did whack off some of the points...pooey. I tried so hard (yes, that is a whine). Now if you want a wonderfully pieced quilt, My sister Beverly is the gal for you...that girl can piece up a storm. I had to admit, I need more patience and practice.

I don't see that you whacked off any points at all. You did a great job. I'm loving this pattern too. Hope the sun is smiling on you today.

Beautiful quilt! I try so hard not to lose any points too but always seem to lose a couple. I think I lose patience towards the end and the poor points pay the price.
