My test yesterday was to decide whether the pieces of the border should be random lengths or the same exact size as the blocks. I only need to put borders on the sides since the top and bottom already have light fabric edges. The test border on the left is OK, the one on the right is nice and tidy. I think I'll probably do the one on the right.
I have been complaining that the trees aren't as pretty this year but since the heavy frosts several days in a row last week, we are now seeing color. The maple tree across the street from me just turned brown and the leaves fell off. It is usually really pretty. This one 2 doors north is really pretty.
I have one maple in the back yard too and it just started to turn a couple days ago. I think it will be even prettier in a couple days.
