Thanks for all your comments on my dilemma. I'm going with the green leaves and I have just enough to get 4 1/2" borders out of that piece of fabric. Here's another question - when you piece your larger borders, do you cut them on the diagonal or do you join them end to end. I always join them diagonally, but since I'm really tight on this fabric, I may have to join them end to end as it wouldn't waste as much fabric. Enquiring minds want to know - what do you do?
I was supposed to have dinner with my sister in law and Sandra in Toronto tonight, but Sandra has caught some bug and went home from work sick, so we've postponed it. I was really looking forward to it too :-(
I'm planning a quilt-a-thon this weekend. Leo is going on one of his annual fishing trips which the guys were kind enough to postpone until he was feeling up to going. I'm a bit nervous about him doing his own injections and dressings, but I have made him promise he'll call me every day just so I know he's O.K.
Ben and I have some good movies lined up and I'm hoping to give Tillie a good work out.
