UGGG - decided two days before a baby shower to try my hand at quilt as you go. I embroidered most of the blocks, appliqued the letters in the babies name and mastered the joining of the blocks.
......then at 11 p.m. last nite I started the borders. I had a heck of a time with it! I don't know if I was just over tired or what but I could not for the life of me figure out how to do the final two borders so the unfinished edges wouldn't show! I did give it as a gift after I camoflauged (sp?) the borders, but brought it home with me so I could redo them and add a label.
I learned that I've got to stop doing last-minute gifts!
