Solving One Hexie Dilemma

Thanks for all your input for Lou! I tend to agree with Quiltsmiles who said,

"To add borders on this beautiful Hexie top I would use length of fabric long enough to to protrude beyond where a mitre would happen. The width of the border times 2 then add the length of the side(s) to it and even add on 6" for wiggle room. Find the center point of each length then appliqué on and stop 1" away from the ends.  
After all four borders are attached then mitre those corners to have the finish it sounds like you want. Hope this explains it well enough."

Well said, Quiltsmiles!!! Hope this help, Lou!

Remember this little embroidery project? I've put about 10 hours of work into it so far. Well....

Yesterday afternoon I went with Daughter 2 for a wedding dress fitting. Hubby was home with the dogs. Yada, yada, yada...when I got home I discovered that Cooper had somehow gotten his hands on my project. Chewed a big hole in the center. Not salvageable. COOPER!!!!!!!

And so I will take a deep breath and start over. Sigh...

Last night my good friend who has been working on quilting Odyssey for me delivered the quilt. I don't think I've stopped smiling since I've seen it. I LOVE the custom work she did. So now I can bind it!!!!! Can't wait to share the finished project with you all in the November/December issue of Hexie Love!

We have tickets to the football game this afternoon, but I'm not sure yet if I will go. I'm pretty tired today. So we will just see... (And I have to admit, I'm chomping at the bit to start binding Odyssey!)

Happy weekend, everyone!
