Everyones quilts are gorgeous.  I love all the different looks that you guys came up with.   Carol I love the leaves.  They are perfect.

I do need everyone to post pics of your completed tops in the media section of the group.  We usually give a couple of weeks to get the tops finished and posted.  Then we will vote on our favorite top.   Looks like that this one will be another hard pick.

Donna, The way I did mine was to first add the inner (dark brown) border on all sides. Then I added the border of colors on two opposite sides, then the outer (dark brown) border. So two sides had all three borders and the top and bottom only had the inner border. After that, I added trhe border of colors to the top and bottom, making the colors extend to the ends of the side outer borders. So now I had three borders on the sides and two on the top and bottom. The outer border on the top and bottom were put on last. I added the 4" square to a piece of the 2" fabric for the color border, then attached the middle section of the outer border. These are not yet sewn to the quilt. My other 4" square for the other corner was sewn to a 2" piece to extend the color border. At this point, I pinned the longer section to the quilt and measured where to cut it so it would connect to the other corner in the right place.

So hard to explain in writing for me!  Hopefully someone else has an easier way to explain!  I wanted to make sure someone suggested an answer for you.

Carol from Pittsburgh:
I just finished putting my MQ7 top together. When I first posted a photo, Mimi suggested it would make a good fall throw because of the colors. That's what inspired the leaves. Thanks, Mimi!

This is wonderful Carol. The leaves are a nice complement.

Lyubov

I see no reason why you couldn't translate the instructions for this quilt as long as you give credit of the pattern to Missouri Star Quilt Co.  I hope your friends have fun doing their quilts.

Nana, thank you for your support, and as soon as I finish my quilt, I help my friends to sewinq the quilt as  MQ7.

Thanks Carol from Pittsburgh how to do those borders.  I couldn't figure it out so I did piano keys.  I'll try the other way next time.  I really do like the way this quilt came out.  Everyone did a great job so far.  Will be hard to choose which one I really like.

Just wanted to let each of you know how beautiful all your quilts are.  I've been working on finishing everyone elses quilts and just couldn't manage to fit this one in this time.  May do it later after the Christas rush.  Love all the special ideas you crafty ladies have come up with.  They are all gorgeous.

I just love everyone's interpretation of the quilt.  I have the strips done, but have been sidelined with getting Christmas gifts made as some need to be mailed early next week, plus need to replenish some items that sold at the month long craft fair.  If I keep to my planned schedule, I'll finish the MQ this weekend and then will post pics.
