Unpick that border!

Hi y’all,

I’ve been unpicking the border on the pug quilt today. The pieced border that I had originally planned looked awful. It’s all part of the job. However it meant that my measurements were now completely out of whack. I spent last night with a calculator, a pen, and a ream of paper trying to work it out.


When I got up this morning I realised that all I had to do was add an extra 1/4in to one of the inner borders and all was fixed size-wise. Duh. Sometimes you can’t see the wood for the trees.

Today I’ve sewn 45 blocks for the new border and it is the happiest quilt I’ve made by far! This one’s a good one!

A couple of days ago I posted that I was going to sell some of my sample quilts. Thank you to everyone who messaged me. I’m sorry I haven’t replied to some (a lot) of you yet. I was completely taken by surprise at the response I received. To be honest I was unprepared for it and I’ve stuck my head in the sand a little.

I will make a list of names, in the order you have contacted me and when I price everything up I’ll message you.

A Pug’s Life

Bright, fun, happy, and almost done. I LOVE this quilt! We are still having issues with our internet connection. We have a connection but every time one of our neighbours logs in, we get logged out – an it happens dozens of times a day. Please bear with us til we get a fix. toni xx

The Twilight Zone.

Hi y’all, we’re still without an internet service, however $4 Friday will be on tomorrow. We’ll be doing our February¬†Therm O Web¬†giveaway draw in a few days time too. I’m using my mobile to log in, but it’s not great, so please be patient. If you need to contact me for something, please send an email to redbootquilts@bigpond.com It’s easier to access messages that way and it doesn’t use too much of our meagre mobile data allowance.

Our service provider can’t tell us when we’ll be reconnected, they are being quite shifty about the whole thing grrr! If anyone knows a Telstra executive who I can kick up the butt about it, let me know LOL.

Take care, I’ll log in tomorrow and upload the $4 Friday deals. toni xx
