I like the technique for making the curve, which I think is similar to the orange peel technique. I plan on using this technique in the future, but rather than fold the triangle back I am going to fold it under and hand stitch it. I think that will have a nicer finished. So all things consider this will be something useable and at least it is not a waste of fabric. I learned something new and had a great time with friends.

My biggest project this weekend was to finish piecing a quilt for a friend's camper. I changed my mind about some of the borders. I decided against a thin brown border. I added the leaves as corners stones on the green nine patch border. I also selected a different fabric for the thin border. It seemed to bring together the colors in the quilt. Finally the darker four inch outer border carries the colors of the panel out.

I love the details in this quilt. Mostly they are happy accidents, as this was a create as you go quilt.
If there is free time this week I hope to start my applique'. Perhaps there will be time to finish the quilting on the table topper? I'd like to have these projects out of the way before Bonnie Hunter's new Mystery! Thanks for checking in.
