    Meredith, have you auditioned the dark green fabric for the binding? That might work well.

    I'm using the brown to match my cones....I'm pretty sure anyway... see what you've done now????
    What about chocolate-dipped strawberries? Chocolate Cherry Cordials? Both could be hot pink!

    Kathy, Yes, and the green would look good, but I want to use red, I want that "pop" of color on the edge. Actually I wish I had the same red I used for the cornerstones, but I can't find anymore. The red (I posted) has tiny cream stars. I found some more of that fabric online yesterday and ordered it! It was on sale too, I was surprised I found any red because this line came out over a year ago. :D

    Also, the left over fabric is going into the backing, so that lovely dark green is going to be in the quilt too! I plan to square the remaining pieces, lay them out, arrange them, then sew them together. I'm sure I have enough to cover at least a 1/3-1/2 of the back.That should cover the center section nicely. :D

    Since this girl is so hefty, I am going to use a lighter weight batting, probably the one you posted that is in your quilt! :D

    Whew! I'm so glad you were able to get more red. I really like it, too, but was afraid you wouldn't get more. I am lovin' Thermore batting. I haven't ever seen such thin batting. Even now, several months since I started quilting it, it hasn't fluffed up. Still paper thin. I'm trying to keep the quilting to a minimum as I have noticed that when I quilt a quilt, it gets heavier with the addition of the thread. Then add the weight of the binding & the thread to sew it on (twice). every ounce adds up, doesn't it.

    Warning - it has a sort of sticky feel when you first bring it out of the bag. It goes away after a little while. It's not sticky enough to glue the top & batting down like spray basting adhesive would. It's just a funny feeling. I basted with basting thread. I really like hand quilting through it - almost like there isn't any batting there, but it does puff up nicely on the applique pieces.

    i see it, but it doesn't light up for me to open it, or have an option. when i edited a kite. sorry. i must be doing something wrong. i just blew thru this, without learning lots, cause i was just copying what you ladies said to do. i even found the the measurements for the strips between the blocks today. but on my software, or on any place else i looked, couldn't find it. found it on page 380, thereabouts, where YOU were re telling someone about it.

    I should think the light blue croc that new baby kitty is curled up in would be the thing for kincking Elle's b--- ! Much softer & gentler.

    Elle, so glad you've gotten back to finishing your Asian Jane! I have no idea what it is like to put something down for a year & then pick it up again - no idea um - um - um maybe 10 years, but not one!!! We'll be here cheering you on with all the rest of the new members.

I put a date on the quilt today for my corner stone of November 2011 so its got to be finished by the end of November right.
