    I have always "rolled" my quilts after sandwiching them.. Last month I got a pool noodle. It is just too short for the size quilts I do, but perfect for the "baby" size quilts. So I'll keep it for them and the lap size quilts. Meanwhile, I'll keep "rollin" the bigger ones.

    Get another pool noodle the same size diameter and connect them by rolling a magazine or newspaper inserted into each pool noodle. You can cut them to the extra length you need. It works for me. I don't normally quilt larger than twin size so my extensions are based on that length but it is possible to sandwich larger sizes with the noodle extension.

    Found the hint on the internet. I wrap the two ends with some masking tape to make sure the ends stay together until I' m done. The tape removes easily and no sticky residue.

    Rhapsody in Red border 4. This round of borders is the very annoying size of 5" x 45.5". I decided to go with Kaffe Fassett fabric Oriental Trees in the black colorway. The orientation or direction of the fabric is much more prominent in the black colorway than it is in the pink colorway I used in the previous #3 border. Consequently I took the extra time to cut and match the fabric to get the orientation correct and to get motifs to match up.

    This one darker border should really pop all the other colors.

    Can you see the difference in orientation between border #3 which was all cut WOF and border #4 which was cut both WOF and length of fabric to preserve the orientation? I matched the green bush to wrap around the corner.

    Rhapsody in Red border 5. This is my favorite fabric. If I had an unlimited budget this is the fabric I would use for the backing.

    Rhapsody in Red border 7, transitioning into the orangish shades of red. I choose Kaffe Fassett fabric Oriental Trees in the orange colorway.

    I can't wait to see the whole thing Denise! You are a masterful piecer. I see your corner border #4 where that green bush was cut in the middle but you matched it EXACTLY on the side border.Great job!! Just wondering how you perfected that skill, were you an upholsterer or professional wallpaper hanger before you started sewing?

    Guys, I'm surfacing after the insanity that was my local guild's quilt show last weekend. Set up, two days of being open, tear down and then Monday doing all the financial stuff and the report to the board and guild membership last night! OK, I can breathe now LOL.

    I had just one quilt in the show - the Scrappy Sister's Choice that I finished last year. First time I'd EVER exhibited my work anywhere.
