    I posted this a while ago as a top - now it's quilted! I had nowhere in the house big enough to hang it so it's now hanging over the road in our Village Hall! I was talking to the Chairman one night about how much I'd like to hang it there but the only wall space large enough was over the entrance to the snooker room and that is where the portrait of the Queen and Prince Phillip hangs - well he said to me " We'll move the bloomin' Queen!" :lol: Don't tell her, she'll probably lock me in the Tower of London! :mrgreen:

    Anyway, today we hung it and here are some pics. It is made using the one block wonder technique - for more info on these types of quilts, check out the Topic List here http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual_section_list.jsp

    There are quite a few pics so bear with me! :-D

    OOh, they look great, k. I was actually thinking of cutting the Floral master fabric 3.5 inches instead of 3.75, just to get a little more detail. Not that it's really necessary with that print, but I was thinking. lol

    They look fabulous, the pebbled frames are just right. Your comments abut the Queen made me laugh too, thanks for the giggle!

    Good idea! Fun to see the difference as well. :-D

    Thanks everyone, I must say this is my favourite of my own OBWs! :-D
