LOL!  I'm not a night owl like some of you guys, so I posted before I went to bed.

Oh I can't wait to put mine together. I haven't purchased my boarder fabrics yet - any suggestions for me? Thanks.

I am with you Sue! and I'd like a suggestion too.  Plain color, or a batik good question, eh?

Sandy, what is the timeline to enter the "viewer's choice" contest?  I'm heading to a retreat this coming weekend, so I'll be bringing along my MQ to work on then.

Of course, Elizabeth.  You may finish it any way you like.

Completed tops need to be posted by November 18th.  They do not need to be quilted, just a completed top.  I will open a new thread here in the discussions just to post pictures.

You then will have until November 25th to vote for your favorite by sending me the name of the person who made the quilt you like best. (Send your vote via Friends so it will be private.)  I will post the Viewer's Choice winner on November 26th.

Sandy,

I'm not sure how to go about trimming the blocks to include a 1/4 seam line.  Any tips you can give me?

Thanks... and love the MQ pattern!

I am also a little confused on the trimming..... The diagram seems to show something different than what makes sense to me......

Thanks

Debra and Karyn,

I took a long ruler and lined up 1/4" along the points on each side and trimmed.  If possible, I made sure I had 1/4" on the point that was closest to the edge of the block.  Your blocks may end up being slightly different sizes, but if you use sashing all cut to the same length you should be able to keep your blocks all the same size.  Hopefully, this picture will clear it up for you.  Let me know if you still need help.

Thanks Sandy.  The photo does help, a lot.

OK....so I guess I get the dunce award......what am I missing? According to the diagram (given with instructions for the final steps) it looks like we trim almost down to the bottom of the V (where the circle is on your ruler above?) but that still leaves a hole...does this get filled in by the sashing? Seems like that would be a weak point in the quilt? I don't get it.....is that right? Or do I just need more sleep?
