Yippeee!!!

A big Thank you to you fellow bloggers who tried to help me figure out setting corners. The sides didn't give me as much trouble as the 4 corners! However, while foraging through my stack of quilting books I came across this wonderful book I must have purchased years ago but forgot about. Right here towards the back of the book is a page on setting triangles and corners. It gives great instructions and I whizzed through the completion of the quilt top.
Now doesn't it look cute??? I'm not going to put a border on it but will bind it in white to frame it. Now onto my purple, blue and yellow strips.


I also finished putting together the Star Buggy Barn quilt top. It goes together quite easily since it is done in rows and all the filler pieces are cut from the instructions. This is for a 6 foot 2 inch kid so I will probably put a plain border on it before having it quilted.


Then I made a couple more Tag Alongs. I love the ribbons on this one. The ribbon on the center of each side is paw prints.



So much fun in my sewing room the last couple of days. What shall I do next? Got to get busy on those other strips I've already cut.....and a few more Tag Alongs.....and what about those 4 other Christmas quilts I need to start soon.

Happy Quilting! Lynda

I have that book and it's been a lifesaver for me many times. Looks like you have been very busy. The quilts look wonderful.

Sounds like you have a few new projects in the making there, Lynda. You've made great progress on your WIPs; they both looks wonderful!

Yes, I have this book too and often have to go and look something up. Very clear and "understandable". Love your Tag Along! So cute! Hugs Vreni x

I'm glad you got the corners figured out. It is such a pretty quilt, and I love the buggy barn stars too.

Books are a GrEat help! No wonder I keep buying them..lol. And making taggies are addictive!

I used to have that book; let someone borrow it and it never came home. I need some setting help too. Maybe I'll check it out from the library. Thanks!
