No finished quilt yet. I finished the center of the star quilt from the last couple of posts very quickly, but stalled at the borders. I finally settled on something earlier this week, then spent a good part of yesterday taking them off again. I’ve read so many different books and blogs and tutorials about how to attach borders so they won’t ripple and the quilt will lie flat that you’d think I could manage it by now. These particular borders made the quilt’s corners curl up. I’m not looking for perfection, but all four corners really shouldn’t pull up like little cups!
I have had the satisfaction of completing something creative though. Last weekend was my daughter’s birthday so cake decorating was in order.
The inside was the really fun part! Thanks to Megan at NotMartha for the idea and instructions. This coming weekend I have to follow up with a cake for my son’s 13th…I’m still tossing ideas around for that one. There’s nothing like the last minute!
