Just a note to answer comments. Thanks to Pat for the border advice. My quilts usually come out pretty square, I just am overly aware that they hang straight because so many of them go on display. When you measure, do you lay the quilt flat on the floor? Since fabric is so flexible, the measurements never seem true, no matter how I measure. But they look pretty good in the end.
My plane got into Minneapolis an hour late last night. My brother was there to pick me up. Spent the night at my Dad's in St. Louis Park. Daughter and family came to get me today.
The AC is out in their van and we drove to their home in Buffalo with the windows open and 102 degrees heat! But we are still kicking! Hard to complain when so many have it so much worse. I mentioned the locations to answer the questions of Mary and Sweet P. Although I was born in New York, my husband is a true blue Minnesotan of Swedish descent. We raised our family here amidst lots of cousins, etc. I come here about twice a year for family visits. It is a great place to live, I think. Mary, I hope you will like it here. You look to be about the age of my daughter, I bet you would enjoy each other. Great quilt shops abound!
