    Bountiful blessings

    I finally got the sashings on the blocks to form the quilt top, now on to the borders. I will be adding 1/2 inch tiny teal (it is in the log cabins but for some reason looks blue in pic) then 3 inches of the dark brown then another 1/2 inch teal then 5 inches dark brown and bind it in the coral that is in the log cabins. I haven't decided on backing yet; there is a gorgeous southwest print online that would go so well on sale for $9 yd but even then it would be $50; I could use a wide back in a marbled dark brown and it would be much less; just do not have enough fabric left to do a pieced or clever back to match. Will post a pic when I get it all done (IF ever!) Want to thank all of you who have helped along the way but don't abandon me yet as I surmise I will be calling on you yet again. The pic is a little mis-shapen due to position on floor and colors are not quite on. The pot in the lower right hand corner is a copy of a pot in my cupboard that my son-in-laws grandmother hand made in Acoma. Thanks for looking.

    Oh, my.

    Please send this quilt to me.
    Because I really, really, really love it.

    Wow.

    The blocks, the colors, the sashing blocks (very cool).
    Everything.
    I love (and want) it all.

    I'm next in line. Could it be like a round robin and we pass it around? It belongs in a major quilt show!! We could even chip in for the backing! ;o)

    How inspiring. But I already have a long bucket list. Can I, too, get on the "send it to me list"????
