    Another preview

    I got a 'fake' piping and border on Rita's quilt top today. Have to piece the backing, and have it ready to sew. If all goes well, I will get that done and sandwich everything tomorrow. I intend to FMQ it - I'm going to practice first though and I really haven't done that.

    Here she goes:

    I love this fabric for a little Girl.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                    That quilt makes me smile--love the bright colors. The piping is fantastic. Do you always miter your border? I never do it and I really like the look.

                          This is the first time I have mitered corners. It really wasn't that difficult - BUT, one of them (actually the last one I did) is a bit wonky. But, you have seen the post "You Can Quilt That Out", right?
