I'm continuing the subject of Jan's last post. I completed this Snowball & 9 Patch on New Year's Eve night (disturbing insight into my social life!). As soon as I laid the completed top on the floor to admire, I noticed something in one corner. Oops, one 9 patch 4's/5's transposed. It would be easy to fix since it's in the corner, but I kinda like it. I'm leaving the mistake in - major breakthru for me!
Thanks to Jan for sharing a 1/2 yd of the background fabric to complete the quilt. Fabric requirements increase when changing from straight set to 'on point'. Sauder's shopping with a friend is a 'good thing'!
Now to the border dispute. I have background strips to add a 3 1/2" max outer border. So the options are: 1) no border, 2) background border only, or 3) skinny inner border (maybe not the fabric pictured) and background border.
