So if we're going to have a quilt gallery here, I'll add the one I made for Alexis. The pattern is called "Fanciful Flowers" from Quilter's Cache (of course). I also made the pillow cases to match and am still working on that throw pillow. Ye gads!

Colors were coordinated with wedding colors. Not a good picture. Sorry.

Now working on a quilt for DD for Christmas in her primary colors of grey and fuschia, with other colors added for future color scheme changes. This will be the center of the quilt, Carpenter's Wheel from Quilters' Cache, with 4 of these 24" blocks:

DD has a king-size bed so it will be a large quilt!

So here's my progress to date on the quilt for DD. All the center blocks are sewn together and the wide grey sashing added. Next comes those entwined borders,
which will take quite a while, I'm guessing.

Closeup of the mitered corners. These blocks would have been gorgeous set on the angle, 1 on top and bottom and 2 in the center, but I didn't have enough sashing fabric to make those very wide corner pieces. Maybe next time.

Angie, that is just gorgeous. When I try to study the pattern I see different things and then have to look away to get a new perspective. Tell me again, how many blocks is that? I don't know how you do it! What patience and such perfection!

Arlene: That is 4 large (24") blocks in the center. The border is about 11" wide. That
is what happens when you butt blocks together, you sometimes get a secondary pattern that makes it hard to discern the original block. Tried to follow a technique for mitering from Harriet Hargrave's Quilt University book, but reverted to my old tried and true method.

Thank you for the compliment. I do better when I'm on a deadline Thumbs up

I need a lesson on mitering. I have put off doing several quilts because of the mitered border.

Susan: There are several tutorials on line for mitering and the instructions I use most are probably from Quilters' Cache. If it's not there, just type in mitered borders in the search bar of your computer.

Jenny's tutorial are the best, she takes it slow and easy. This is the one I like best for binding..

This is this years D.I. T shirt quilt. Most likely it will be the last. I said I would make them as long as one of my grands was still involved. They were in it starting in grade school and now are well into their 20s. Will was on the state board but has now resigned.Thumb of 2018-02-22/Siliolegma/5a8a1f

That's sweet, Karen, and I love all the different shirts featured on it. I'm saving Alexis's T-shirts for this purpose one day. Mercy, it won't be that long in coming either. Great memories featured there.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to get rust out of muslin? My neighbor Margaret,
who passed last year, had a bin of sewing things and in it were 2 quilt tops. One was just blocks pinned together with a needle which had rusted so badly that I had to gently pull the fabric off of it to get it out. It kept breaking into little pieces when I tried to use the needle-nose pliers. Of course it left rust spots. There is a hexagon top, too, and both of these are hand-sewn. I'm going to wash them very gently in cold water, but am wondering what I should do about those rust stains beforehand. I'll post a photo of them later.

There is a product I believe it's called rust out that should remove the rust but I'd worry about it damaging the fabric color.

I use Oxyclean + Era to wash old fabrics with good success.

Those Ts are from all around the world. When D.I. has their global meet in Knoxville, there are literally thousands of kids from all over the world who spend a week meeting and competing.

Karen, I think it's so inspiring (not only to me but to the kids) when youngsters get together in a common interest. I will never forget the excitement that exuded even over the computer last summer when Alexis attended Flip Fest gymnastics camp in TN. I know it certainly improved her ability and I'm sure it has been an added impetus for her continued passion for the sport. She continues to amaze me.

So just to update my progress on the quilt, here is the diagram for that border that I'm adding to the wide sashing:
Thumb of 2018-03-01/Hemophobic/fd0e1b

Here is what the first block looked like before being sewn together:
Thumb of 2018-03-01/Hemophobic/263633

And here are 2 blocks put together so I could get some better idea. You can see my notation that the corners don't meet well on one of the blocks.

Oh, well. It won't be noticeable once it's quilted (I hope Whistling )

Nice border Angie, I use graph paper a lot to work out patterns. I love how it can look so difficult but when you break it down into squares, it becomes a possible thing.
