    That is gorgeous! What a beautiful design.

They will go off to the LA person. I said some words I shouldn't have while doing it. But lessons learned and that's what life is all about. My label says Selvage Quilt!
    What a wonderful quilt. The sashing is a really original touch - love it.

    I love the colours in this, What an interesting design. I bet you don't want to see another small square for quite a long time!

    Wow, QuilterMomma, it looks as if you've already fulfilled your year's quota of UFOs! Some lovely quilts here.

    Really need a new camera.
    I really like this - great colour choices. A pattern I'd like to try sometime. (all right, I know, not until I've cleared some UFOs!)

    I created my own templates of a fiddle, guitar, banjo, and mandolin and included that in the quilting. I will have to send the pics in 2 batches. Hope you like it.
    Those are fabulous! Doing a week's catch-up on this thread is amazing: I'm seeing so many wonderful quilts, and such a variety of styles. Really exciting.

    So - I've had a happy half hour looking at all the finished quilts that have been posted here this week. Me? Nothing to show yet. I'm doing Leah Day's Quilt Along at the moment, and am also getting to know a new machine. As I do Leah's tutes, I'm digging out UFOs that will enable me to practice what she's been demonstrating, so some of them are moving on a bit, but nothing's actually getting finished. My problem is that I'm so careless/accident-prone that I spend much valuable time sorting out mistakes. An example - this week I got out a Christmas wall hanging that just needed some quilting on the borders to finish it off. Following Leah's lesson on Stippling I rattled that off, and began to get excited about binding and finishing it - until I turned it over and discovered that the backing had shifted as I quilted on 2 sides, so I've had to undo quite a lot of the quilting. There are also about 5 million threads to be disappeared into the back of the quilt (serves me right for not doing them as I went along). And at some point in the making I managed to bleed onto the top, so if I ever get the thing bound, I have to wash it and hope that the stain will come out. That will be before I sew on the sequins that I've decided would be a nice finishing touch (it's a Christmas tree). Oh, and I also realised just yesterday that the backing has a one-way pattern and I've put it on sideways! Doesn't really matter as it's a wall hanging, and (obviously!) isn't very noticeable anyway, but par for the course!
    So it looks as if this one might just about be finished by Christmas - and all the other UFOs are still waiting. I wonder why I never get anything finished...!
    And believe it or not, I do TRY to be careful!

    BarbEllen, Those cats are sooooo cute!! I like the bowtie blocks(is that the correct name for them?) that you used in the sashing area.
    Glad you got the piecing finished.
    What are your plans for quilting it?
