Thanks folks. But does anyone remember who posted the Entwined pattern in the first place? Thank you for the idea.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Beautiful quilts Carol. I see a couple of them that are familiar
Donna, cute runners and always like the purples.
Judy T, love the border, that's a lot of HST's makes me tired.
Your border looks great, Judy! I don't remember who posted it, but I know the date was Aug. 18 because that's the date on the picture of the border that I saved to my files for future use.

Judy - I made a copy of that border idea, too--you're doing a great job on it, I knew it would look great! I hope to use it someday! Also, thanks to all who commented on the quilts at the fair - wish I'd had time to take better pictures - but you surely recognized some of those, MQs, and some I've shown on here before!
Thank you all, I am gonna make another one for the other bathroom in the morning.
Donna, very cute. I started thinking about making one as well and then I realized my toilet tank has a pushknob? at the top. Too bad. And the upstairs toilet has a built-in tank in the wall. I'll just have to keep looking for a nice place, cause the design is just too adorable.
Judy, love your border. I have never made a complicated border, so I guess I'm just simple ;-)
Carol, beautiful quilts.
Yesterday, I worked on my sampler by hand, my first ragquilt by machine and I drew the pattern pieces on the fabric for my mysteryquilt. I got the fabric for the ragquilt two weeks ago, and I cut it on monday. Tuesday and wednesday were the sewing days, and today the clip, wash and dry day. I'm so looking forward to the result.
I hope you will post pics of your quilt when it is finished. Love rag quilts but have never made one.
Judy, I love your border and your choice of colors. With such a complex border I think your quilt will be amazing.

For those who do not like to do HST's, you might consider the Square in a Square technique. It is quick and easy and with each square you get 2 HST's sets.
I got the ruler and book, wow it has helped me so much, especially with flying geese, (my White Christmas quilt had over 50 flying geese) using the SnS ruler they were a snap. The workbook has so many lovely quilt patterns using this time saving device.
I also give it high praise for improving ones accuracy. I'm in the process of completeing3 more White Chrismas quilts...that's over 150 flying geese, they were fun, didn't have to frog even one.
I love that table runner at the top of the page...I hope to do one for Christmas for MOI! Thanks for posting it.
OOPS, just realized that is a border...It will still make a beautiful table runner for my small glass top dining table, YEP got to get busy and set aside the fabrics now.
I'm almost done quilting the queen sized quilt for my new bed. I can only stitch for a couple hours at a time because my back gets sore from bending over. My HQ16 is the "portable" model (yeah, right) and the frame is mounted on standard folding buffet tables. That's too short for me. DH is busy constructing a new base that will be 6-inches higher. Can't wait!
Just entered the "Fabric for Life" contest (QCA & Keepsake Quilting). Do you realize it opened August 1? This is the first time I noticed that it was running again this year.
Exactly where did you find the "Fabric For LIfe" contest for 2012. I have searched QCA and Keepsake Quilting and I can not locate the contest.
Thanks for the heads up.
Love that border!!!
