My test square printed out at 1 inch; it made my day! :lol:

Margo, I love your scrappy version because I'm doing mine from stash. thanks for showing the floral fabric you used between the 1st 2 floaters. I was trying to figure out what I was going to do.

I am sorry to hear about your printer problems. I tried that myself and I bought a brand new one because when it prints different in the two directions you can't do anything to fix it. If you have a friend with a reliable printer you could ask for help. If not I could send you some prints by snail mail. I don't think it would take long time to get a letter.

I made the blue floater, it was easy. I have not started applique yet, because I have still problems with my printer. All settings should be right. I measured the test square and there is teeny tiny difference in height and width. When I measure border corner stone on last page, there is bigger difference. That makes corner stone appliques little unbalanced and swags too long. My printer is old and tired and don't want to co-operate. I do not know how, but some way I just have to make it work... (And now I can explain to myself my mistake on first month. It was my printer, not me to cause trouble :wink: )

I was able to get my half inch border on yesterday. After that I prepped one of the scalloped borders, and appliqued them down last night. The scalloped border really frames this portion of the quilt beautifully. I really am enjoying this quilt. :D

I should be getting my kit with the Beloved Beauties fabric sometime soon. I ordered the day I saw it was available, and they shipped it next day (yay, Jeff!). Just couldn't decide on a color palette I liked better than the Beloved Beauties one. Trying not to think about being behind. Margo, I'm going to be rereading your tips and advice once I get started. This month is a beauty!

Margo, I have a GREAT IDEA! How about if I trade you my unfinished quilt for one of your finished ones (either one, I'm not picky!) Then you'll have something to work on too, and I'll have a masterpiece! :lol: :wink:
