I found a fabric I liked from the stash for the border for the puzzle quilt.
I had to cut the strips by scissor because when I folded it and lined up the ruler, the strips wouldn't be straight- along the pattern stripes-what to do? Cut them by hand!
I cut along the lines of the design!
It didn't take too much longer to cut the 5 strips and now I know they run right along the straight line of the pattern and will not drive me crazy! It's good to know what to do so you don't drive yourself crazy!
While I cut my strips, my friend Mary stritched a few more rows on her quilt at the frame. We had a few glitches due to power outages during the intense thunder storm that rolled through mid-day! We had a snack and waited out the storm
and soon got back to work! We've had 12" of rain for the month of July already! We usually have that much for the whole summer! Needless to say, the pond lawn and surrounding low area is very soggy!
The mail brought two kits from QuiltsForKids which have some very bright and cheerful fabrics!
I will enjoy turning this little pile into two new quilts!
