Hi Sheri~
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet comment! I enjoyed my visit here at your blog as well.
Your quilting is just beautiful!! I so wish I had the talent and the patience to quilt. My mom is an excellent quilter I must not have been paying attention when they passed out the quilting genes.
Your little doggies are sweet and look like good helpers as well.
Hope to see you again sometime soon.
Blessings~ Birgit

Borders....everyone hates them I think. What I usually do is measure each side being careful not to stretch. I don't usually have too much trouble with them not being unequal over 1/2 an inch. I then measure out my border, being careful not to stretch the fabric, and cut to the side measurement plus an inch for "play". Then I very carefully pin and usual I end up right, and don't need the inch. If I find I am not straight when I reach the end of pinning from left to right, then I pin back from the right side to the left and usually it works out. I hope this makes sense. It isn't the "correct" way to measure, but it works for me. This is such a pretty little quilt, very crisp looking. You did a beautiful job!

Oh, that is a lovely little piece of work! How much credit to the helpers get? Mine contributes nothing but HAIR in vast amounts.
I shall have to return to your blog to see what kind of border you do.
