“Just around the Corner, Quilts withEasy Mitered Borders”

             

Ya gotta love Roseann!  Thank you friend, for your nice post yesterday!

I’ve been so pleased with how the hop went this week.  I hope you all have had a good time.

 

Today I want to share a little more with you about the actual mitering technique used in “Just around the Corner”.  Because I just found out that the video I did with Jodie from QNNtv.com at market is now on-line, I thought this would be a good time to send you over there to watch the segment.  You will catch on right away how the miter works!!

And since you are there, Jodie also did a nice job a year ago on the Clearly Perfect Angle.  This video, too, shows a complete over-view of how useful and user-friendly the CPA really is.

 

Now, don’t forget that I too, am giving away a copy of “Just around the Corner” and the Clearly Perfect Angles!  Make sure you leave a comment in order to be eligible (and….you can still leave comments on the guest blogger’s sites to try to win the copy they are giving away)!\

MONDAY…winners announced…be sure to check in!

 

Since I asked everyone to share their favorite project in the book, I thought I should share mine, which is hard for me  🙂

 

So one of my favorites that no one has mentioned is “Medley Lane”.  I think the miter and scallops really highlight this small, framed sampler quilt.  I also think this would be adorable in 30’s reproduction fabrics!

I also like the Christmas topper called “A Caroling We Will Go”.  I don’t think the picture in the book does the wool appliqué justice and I like the small mitered borders used in each corner that gives it a unique shape.

Once you get your own copy, I would love to hear which project is your favorite!

 

Wishing you joy in whatever may be “just around the corner”.  Kari
