Trying a new approach to writing my blog. One of the bloggers I follow , Lane at http://quiltfool.blogspot.com/, mentioned that he uses Windows Live Writer to compose his blogs. Always willing to try something new, I’ve fired up the program and giving it a try-out
While watching quiltcam tonight I worked on piecing a back for the Thomas quilt. And then, while straightening up papers, I glanced at the pattern and realized I had forgotten to do the side borders. The pattern called for a 4.5” at the top and bottom in blue and then in red on the sides. However, I had purchased some fabric with railroad tracks on it to use in this quilt and hadn’t figured out a place to use it yet, so it now has tracks running up the sides.
Started laying out the back pieces in a four-patch setting but with the new sides it is going to have to be 5 blocks by 6.
I think the balloon fabric is going to have to go, just doesn’t fit.
Now to see how this loads the post.
