Turned a Corner!


Y
es I turned the first corner successfully!
It's pretty darn good if I do say so myself. And it only took about 4 tries! There has been more pulling and tugging and fudging in this quilt than any other I have ever made (with the notable exception of the IOP!)
But it matches up on this corner fairly well.
I probably should have mitered that green border, but too late now!




It has been very cold and windy here this week and snow season has started. It's great quilting weather!

  2. We aren't Buffalo but we are sure getting lots of snow. You are doing great on your borders and here's a quick trick for ya! If you don't mind unsewing the corner a bit, you could put a hst unit in the green border at the corner and it will look like you mitred it!!
    If you are interested!!! just saying

  4. Good job on that corner - looks fantastic! We had 3 days of snow while we were gone ... there's a little snow left here and there where the sun doesn't shine much. We're going to get warmer temps with some rain this weekend, so all the snow will be gone.

  5. Beautiful job on that corner--not an easy thing to do! could we maybe skip January as we are having it now and just go on to Feb from here??? No?? I didn't think so...no snow here on the Coast but pretty cold and windy. Hoping for a warmer weekend....hugs, Julierose

  6. That looks great Kathy! Great job. Love the snowy picture..... much better than the frost I had to scrape off the windshield this morning (in Florida!). 32 degrees F this morning. I don't expect this weather anymore until January/February. Brrrr.

  7. I knew you could do it! Freezing drizzle keeping the kids on a 2-hour delay here. Hoping the weatherman is wrong about the week-end weather. I'll have to find more quilts to put on the BEDS!

  12. Standing ovation as I clap wildly and cheer! Now you are on your way to finishing this quilt that has been nagging for so long. You quieted it down with one fabulous corner. :)
    Stay warm and stay safe!

  18. Congratulations - we all knew you could do it. If I remember your stop border was pieced - so I don't think a miter would look right - leave it as it is.

  19. Yep! That corner looks very good. It looks like a corner made by someone who knows what she is doing. Keep going! ;^)
