    Well I got through an entire season of Lost making this quilt!

    Decided to put the borders on per everyone's suggestions

    Used the swirl material for the back - but added a ribbon because at the time it seemed like a good idea.

    Made my own bias tape/binding.

    Now before you peek at the pictures there are some rules:

    1. If you notice that the right side boarder of brown is smaller than the left....it is either a) your imagination or b) I did it on purpose....your choice but those are your only choices!

    2. If you don't like the ribbon - well I don't really either but because its for a raffle we have to all agree to say we like it and it adds flavor to the quilt; and

    3. Tell me why I started doing this? I became obsessed with this quilt for some reason and its not one that I'm doing for an emotional reason (it was a secondary quilt for the kids relay for life team to choose from and a use up the last of the breast cancer material quilt). I couldn't decide on a pattern; I couldn't decide on a boarder; I couldn't decide on the back....I don't know if its a labor of love or a "I'll be dam&*# I am finishing this quilt and it will look like an 8 on Pam's scale of 1 to 10.

    I also including a close up of my FMQ - this was the first time I've ever used the clear thread - I thought it would be hard to deal with but once I got the tension right it was easy!

    Oh yeah - its lap quilt size - ended up 36 wide by 48 long...again do NOT know how I come up with these measurements....
    Ok enjoy and remember the rules above!!!

    Pam, I really do like your colors. I like the lay out of the quilt beutiful, did you say there were some flaws? hmm just couldn't find a one. Re: Ribbon, If no one ever took a change in building a quilt they would all look the same. We learn what is pleasing to our eyes. Nice job. ((((hugs))) I like your garage idea best :) :) :)

    Surprised that didn't make you shred the quilt to pieces. :roll: :roll: :wink: :wink:

    I LOVE the combo of pink and brown and lime green. That brown polka dot you used is fabulous!!

    Very nice quilt....

    I particularly like the way that you made the borders different widths.....such an original design.....which is of course was your plan all along....laugh

    Wonderful job.
