Would love to see a picture of your fabrics.

Anyway it sounds like if we did her 12 FQ + metreage for the border bits she'd have enough to go on with (esp if we throw in a handful of scraps lol).

thanks again, really appreciate the help!

I wish you would post some pictures of your finished dyed fabrics. I have never tried to dye fabric but sometimes I get so frustrated when I can't find the colors I want. Sounds like fun! But then again if I take up another hobby I'm going to have to clean out some of my existing "stuff". That would be rough.

I cut out my 4 outer borders yesterday. Today, after church, I traced the pattern onto the first strip and I traced the pattern pieces onto my Wash-Away Applique sheets. I will probably cut them out this evening while I watch TV and then tomorrow I will be ready to cut the pieces out of fabric. I am using 2 different batiks for the borders. I am still unsure what colors I will use in the embroidery. I think I will wait until the applique is finished and then decide on the colors of my embroidery thread.

Losie, I just went and found the blocks you posted, very pretty, I love the pretty embroidery you did and can't wait to see your top finished.

I am at the borders stage too, only it is at a standstill now..hoping to get back to it in a few weeks. I am determined to have my top finished by the fall...wish me luck, lol.

Thank you for your kind words. I am hoping to be finished before we leave here on vacation on 9/16 but I'm going to have to work faster in order for that to happen. I thought summer time would be a time for more leisure but it ain't happening. Good luck with your borders!

I made 6 AOTH blocks and stopped. I feel like resuming this quilt. Anybody else working on it now?

I'm still at 5 and need to finish up some other commitments first - but do intend to continue with AOTH.

I have made 9 and am still working on them when I get the time. I have a few things to finish up and I will get into them again.

I just got a job where I will have free time for hand sewing so this might be the perfect time to start - I already have the book, fabric and pages printed out
