    I just read what I posted about the quilt I just finished...it is a little confusing to me and I wrote it. The BQ quilt in the picture is 74X90. The next one I will do is 40X40. I have also worked on the challenge quilt today and it is the smallest at 20X20. Yesterday I played WII video games with my grandkids and I am sore today. If you need a workout I recommend you get a WII video game, great workout and tons of fun.

    This is the "BQ" pattern, fun & easy.

    And here are some pics of the quilting on the BQ.

    I loosely followed the design in these blocks.

    I did leaf quilting in the dark frames, there were also line drawings of leaves on that fabric.

    The quilt is stunning. Did you do FMQ, or a bit of marked and FMQ???

    I have this pattern too. It is a ugly quilt on the pattern front. Oranges ..ugggh.

    That being said, I really love your BQ quilt. I have seen many of them made up recently. I really like your fabrics you chose for it.

    Many people just use all the same in the large blocks, which is ok, but I love the sampling effect that lots of nice fabrics make. It just makes the quilt and is how the designer intened it to look.

    I hope you do well in your guild show. It is a pretty quilt, and deserves attention. Let us know how you do.

    Esqmommy, to answer your question...it is all FMQ. I don't mark anything and I really don't like using pantos. I just do my own thing. Thanks for the compliments.

    Great quilt, and particularly the different areas of fmq.

    Well Jaynie - you are one fantastic FMQ'r. Nice work. I recognized it in some places, but others looked so much more, well, pristine for lack of a better explanation. Your quilting is really pretty!
