    I have to say I love how your alternate layout pops a completely different secondary pattern. Both are great, but number 2 has me going WOW, I want to do this one!

    I finally finished the blocks for "The Quilt that Never Ends"!! Woo hoo.

    I selected my backing fabric too: Caterwauling Tales...pretty descriptive of what I was doing while piecing this thing.

    Crazy? Yes, you got it! Sigh...

    I have a love, hate thing going with "The Quilt that Never Ends". I love the pattern, can tolerate the colors, but can't see the grey!!! I just can't see it...in this awesome pattern.

    So, sigh...off I go on the insane path to replace the grey. I started this post acknowledging that I am crazy after all.

    I laid a few black squares on top of the grey to compare and I like it so very much more. Sigh...

    Farew, OMG! I can't believe you are going to replace all of these squares! I personally love your original grey but I understand that we must like what we were working on to work on it lol.

    And I am soo happy to report that after much thinking, drawing and changing my mind I came up with a border design that I am satisfied with and just finished attaching it to the quilt..so it is hot off the sewing machine lol. This is so far one of my favorite quilts I made, the colors are soo me! Thanks to Bonnie for offering this great mystery and thanks to you all for encouraging Hopefully I can find the time to start quilting it soon. It finished at about 68x80, so sorry for the odd angel in the picture

    Fraew, the choice is yours! The contrast with the black does make the rest of the blocks stand out better. No way would I go to all the work of replacing those squares though!

    Candi, you did a great job on that top and bottom border, such a beautiful quilt! Congrats on being finished! What a great feeling that is to finish a quilt. I have four more B blocks to complete and I can start putting mine together.

    Candi- I love that border and your colors. So fun to see how different everyone's quilts are even though using the same pattern.

    Oh candi! I love what you've done! What a treasure.

    I am almost done removing the grey/b/w 4 patches. I will keep them and use them on the back or in something else. All of the replacement black and white squares are cut and ready to stitch up tonight! Rip rip and sew sew.

    Thank you all for supporting me through this. This quilt is really trying hard to be a UFO but I will not let it get the best of me.

    Very pretty quilt Sharyn! I also have a few cut off points, and places that are not 100% lined up. I'm sure no one will notice though, so I really don't sweat it! I have 3 more B blocks to complete - then can start putting them all together!

    First I agree, great quilt Sharyn, I checked it out on your blog. I was reading JeanieG's post after I posted and we both are on the same page with Easy Street. I have 3 B Blocks left too.

    Still working on this a bit every day, but way behind most of you. I've been under the weather for about a month, and want to get more BOW material, so I've been working mainly on the blocks that don't involve that fabric.

    You're all doing very well. Did anyone see Bonnie's new mystery in the latest Quiltmaker magazine? Similar colors and it looks like only four steps.

    Way to go Jeanie! Can't wait to see it!
    I am renting the longarm tomorrow to quilt mine, and hopefully will get bound soon after that.

    Quiltsrfun, I don't have a subscription to QM, would love to work on the mystery, but busy, busy need to get things done here, so no subscription is good, means no temptations lol. I'll just settle on waiting for the one next year hoping she hosts a mystery.

    * * I haven't seen it yet - need to get to JoAnns to see if they carry the magazine as I don't have a subscription - I've been wondering if anyone here is doing it too! My Easy street is hanging on the curtain rod in my livingroom- trying to figure out borders as I sit and look at it each evening.... **
