    here is the one xmas gift i got done, and i hate it!!!! I hate the white borders, i tied it instead of quilting it, and i ended up hating it too. the triangles and squares didnt come out big enough, but I did learn ALOT from this quilt.

    I got the pattern from quilters chache..called the art square. I will be doing this pattern again, only not with something so specific.

    okay, here is what i learned:
    1- make a sample block if you are unsure!
    2- buy all your coordinating fabric at once or you might not find what your looking for ( i wanted the white to be one of the shades of grey and i needed more red and went to three different stores just to find it)
    3- buy a bit more then you think you will need
    4- do NOT procrastinate if it has a deadline.

    okay, i am done renting. whew. guess i will work on something less stressful now. no more deadline! however, my mother-in-law called to see how i was doing and i told her everything, and she reminded me that since it was a xmas gift for a 9 year old, and I had to ship it, i will never have to look at it again, and she will love it cuz it was homemade and her "Favorite racer".. except if i page through my scrapbook of projects...which i will one day start.
    lol but thats another project.

    She'll love it because it came from you!!! Congratulations on getting it done. Too often we just cast something aside and not finish it if we really hate it!!

    I love red, black & white so I'm afraid I can't agree with you, looks great.

    It looks wonderful! I love the white sashing! It makes the focus fabric pop! I'm sure your beautiful quilt will be well received. Who wouldn't love a custom quilt wrapped around them while reading or watching tv? Great job!
