orange than the red-orange pumpkins on the quilt I decided it would tie in beautifully with the rest of the fabrics in the quilt. I cut strips, sewed half square triangles, and had the top almost finished before I went to bed. All that was needed was to applique the five stars across the top, which I finished today.
And what do you suppose showed up in today's mail?
I should have been patient a little bit longer. Notice the original red plaid is very similar to what I used except for the color. The red piece will go on my plaid shelves to be used eventually in a different quilt. I'm certainly not going to change borders now, especially as the stars overlap the top border.
I will chance something though - something I didn't see until I looked at the picture after inserting it in this post. Two triangles on the bottom right are turned incorrectly! That I can't tolerate! So I guess the top isn't quite finished after all!
