UFO Update

I have to thank each and every one of you who posted here, on Stashbusters, or by email in response to my request for advice.  I have considered every possibility that was suggested and made a decision.

I am going to finish the quilt as is - octagonal in shape, without adding additional borders.  I did add a little applique in the setting triangles though because I thought they needed something.  So, here it is in its final form:
I think it needed those corner appliques especially if it will get used as a table topper of some kind.  Here is a closeup of the applique motif:

It may look a little odd but the colors match perfectly and the motif made me think of Paris, and the quilt is called 'Paris Cats'.  (There are cats in the blocks, just hard to see in the small photos).  Someday I will probably give this away as a wedding or housewarming gift.  I hope someone likes it.

To change the subject completely, the power supply on my computer died and I'm waiting for a new one in the mail (should be here Monday).  So I'm typing all this on a little netbook that I use normally just for travel.  If there are any typos it's because the keyboard on the netbook is really hard to use, so please excuse any errors.

Thanks for stopping by... Comments are always welcome...


  1. Don't you hate computer woes? I've had to replace the power cord for this computer twice in the last 7 months. LOVE the applique solution. It's a remarkably perfect match.

  2. The applique looks great. I remember when you worked on this quilt while we were on the quilt cruise. MAC
