Design Wall Monday

Today was one of those days I spent almost the entire day on the computer, Darling Daughter arranged photos from last summers trip into photo books through a major photo service and there were big savings if I got the book done soon. So I did some tweaking and added some information and learned I need to push the save button more frequently so I don't have to do it all again. Finally I was able to push the order button then the preview button and make a few more changes then the add to cart button and finally the credit card information and I was done with very little to show for my days work.
This quilt top went together so much quicker and easier than my photo book.... and using the Quick Curve Ruler, it is wonderful.  I only ripped a few times when I didn't place the 3rd and 4th curves at the right starting point then I have either way too much or too little at the ending point. Then square them up and sew the sashing and corner stones.  Now which fabric do I want to use for the border?? a cream the same value as the background or the stripe? I am going to trim the leftover nine patches for cornerstones in the border and I will use the border fabric cut on the bias for the binding. Looking forward to checking out all the quilts at Judy's tomorrow. I'm done with technology for today. --Ann--
