    Default "Corner Pieces"

    Well, I've ranted, worked, and thought I was just about through and my DH had an idea. So this afternoon, I thought about it and the more I thought about his idea, the more I liked it. (Just don't tell him I said so.)

    My friend's quilt I'm working on I was talking to him about the borders Click image for larger version.

    He suggested that I make arcs for the corners. I have that "circle template thingy" as he called it, might as well use it.

    So when we got home tonight, I cut my squares, and proceeded to cut the circles. Then I stitched around the circles. Once I had the violet sewn on, I realized that when I put the border on the quilt it wouldn't be seen. So I cut one more larger square of the fabric I'm going to use on the outer borders.

    So tomorrow, a thin black border, then the VIVID rainbow and rainbows on the corners. I'm excited to see how it all turns out.

    That hubby of yours is a keeper!!! Any man that can come up with an idea (even if he doesn't know the jargon on the tools), is special. And I love his idea too.
