    Got the center done today. I didn't hit EVERY single one of the HST just right, but I did get most of them. It isn't ironed yet..but here it is so far. Now I HAVE to make myself vacuum & dust before I can work on it more. I am thinking that I'll add just a smidge of the brick ..very very narrow and then it needs a border to make it a little bigger. I may have to go shopping...that will be disappointing as I'll need to wait until I have the IRR centers here to shop for at the same time. We'll see....

    I'm going to call this one Sunrise

    You're so much braver than I am. HST and I don't get along well... It's a beautiful top.. I agree with Sharon, it reminds me of something old... Great job!

    Thanks...yea, I like that kinda old look. I think I'll use a 100% cotton backing so it will pucker up nicely and I'll use this on the porch of the new house that we'd like to build sometime.

    Oh Patti

    I think I've just fallen in love - it's beautiful I absolutely adore this quilt. It does have a traditional look to it. Will look lovely with a narrow red border around it - to sort of frame it. Such a sham you don't have any more of the yellows to make the next border. Go on then off you pop to shop for some more fabric. :wink:
    Enjoy your trip - I'll be thinking of you. :D

    I just love that layout, sandpat - and the idea of the additional color to frame it. Are you thinking of a folded border or something a little wider? I can't wait to see it finished :thumbup:
