Ann Oswalt emailed me in January looking for the border foundation papers for this quilt. Luckily, I had them on my computer. Ann wrote:

It was my first paper-pieced quilt (and may be the last!) and I am so proud of it. None of the stars cupped and all the points are present and accounted for.
Most of the fabric was from 2 fat quarter packs that my grandson gave me for Christmas.  Some came from my stash.  I ran out of red and purple/navy background and had to buy some, so all the sashing fabric is the same.  The top has been finished for about 6 weeks, but I just finished hand-sewing the binding last night.  Here are pix of the finished product.  Thanks for your help.

Gwyn Jalbert sent me this photo of her finished Tile Tango quilt. Isn’t it great! I love the placement of her colors and the way they lead your eye around the quilt.

I began it at the Palmetto Quilt Guild workshop in October 2020.
It was hand quilted by a Mennonite lady in Elmira, Ontario.  I love it!!
I am working on the first block of Aunt Millie’s Garden and I will be starting Birds in Toyland on Thursday.  See you then!!

Thank you, Gwyn, for sharing your quilt with us! If any of you would like to make this quilt, it is in my book, The Quilter’s Practical Guide to Color. Happy stitching!
