Friday Finds #3

  I'm not sure what I spent my week doing, but I know I was busy.  Sometimes the time just gets away from me.  So I am pulling in a couple of pins I found a while back.

From Molly Flanders blog
   If you are in need of a different type of border idea, look at this one.  It's from Molly Flanders blog.  There is a good tutorial on creating a spike border that is a no fuss, not precise, very relaxed attitude style.  In other words, anything works, and no worry about the quilt police pointing out your points are not right!  I think it would be great for just about any scrap quilt.

From asquaredw blog

To go along with the spike border, I found another tutorial that will give you a more precise piecing for the border----if you prefer for all things to be the same.  This is from asquaredw blog  .   She refers to them as HRT---half rectangle triangles.  I am no math whiz, but she is it seems!  It's a good tutorial for creating the HRT.

   As always, please visit the original blog posts that are linked in bold print for the information and tutorials.  Pin from the original post--not from here--to have a direct link to the information.  I am only sharing the source not the info.

Those HRT's are on my list of things to do, I've seen a few quilts with them and I like the look. Did you catch something on your new computer?
