Close to the finish line..

I can't believe how long it's been since I have worked on this, and I'm so close to the finish line. These are the outer corners of the final border. I put a quarter on it to give reference to the size of some of the pieces. Now all that's left to do are the pieced triangle blocks that center in the border and the piecing of the final border sections and the top will be finished. The triangle blocks are going to be the most difficult as all of the pieces will have to be cut by templates and can't be done by rotary cutter, now to just "make" the time to do it.

Thank you Gini, Diane and Mars,


I started this last year and decided to blog about the journey of designing your own quilt with EQ6 and wanted to log progress and any problems I had along the way. So far they have been minimal, the first being not to switch any copy settings from black and white to color as the templates will size different, and the second was the first pieced border was larger, but that could have resulted form the templates being so large they had to be printed on two pieces of paper and taped.

  Marlene, I am getting excited. I can't believe I'm this close to having the top finished!
