    Yeah, after I read my own message, I knew what I was doing wrong. I've just finished it and ate lunch since I sent that last post. I'll take picture now. It has to be a very bad senior moment. LOL

    I didn't even think about centering the design on the back. was thinking in to many other directions. But I love it.

    It will!. I spent the afternoon doing everything backwards, then bingo...it clicked. I just wish I had paid more attention to the back that I very easily could have centered. Next one I will.

    Rhonda,
    If I make the little triangle blocks to go on each side then do I have to cut them down again like we did when putting the block together?

    The funny part is that I don't particularly care for brown and orange, but the orange fabric is southwest desgin and it was a scrap I had left from a previous quilt. The brown is really a tan batik (it's the sashing in my avatar) and my husband loves this color, and I've been trying to find more on the internet, and so far eveything I've ordered comes in to gold. Then I just used the black because it looked good with it. The back was southwest fabric left over from another quilt. Glad you like it.

    I have to agree with your husband.....lol I love those colors you chose. Wish I could find more Southwest fabric here. I made a Navajo wall quilt for my living room and it was the first thing I did free motion quilting on. I chose some fabric that was about as close to southwest as I was going to get and it turned out okay. My FMQ I wasn't satisfied with but it was the first time so I can't beat myself up too bad. :)
