I just this afternoon put on the outer border to my Americana Rose - a mitered border - and I am quite pleased with the results. Here, have a look for yourself!
This quilt was featured in the June 2009 issue of BH&G's American Patchwork and Quilting. I have a great variety of quilt magazines, but the only one I've ever actually made quilts from is APQ. This makes the 3rd, I believe.
So, what's next for me? Well, I cut those 2 bags out awhile back, so I guess I'd better get busy on those. Come to think of it, the pattern I am using is from a BH&G magazine! I will provide details when I post pics of my progress.
Coming up this weekend is my daughter Emma's junior prom - her first prom. She is so excited. I hope you will indulge me next week when I post a pic (or a few) of her and her date in all their finery. Such a big event in the life of a teenager.
