    Elisabrat - I see an amazing quilt there. What you did was reverse your colors in the stars. Pink & purple always go together. I think whats throwing you off is the colors in the chain. I think when you get it all together it's going to look fine. I was still unsure at this stage also, but look how nice it came out in the end!

    Wow, you are doing some amazing work ladies! Elisabrat! I love it, if you don't want it send it to me I will finish for you and take to the VA. People don't realize but there are a lot of Female Vets that would love the girly quilts! I don't go through Color of Valor but go right to VA hospital. Since I go there for my Dr visits, they know me and let me bring what I have. Some they give to patients and some they will sell to raise money! Makes no difference to me as long as they get the idea!

    I am making like a million coasters today! I had to get an address and got side tracked, ok back to my machine!

    I promise I will post a picture when mine is done! Maybe January at this rate! UGH...
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I love the way all the quilts are coming out. can't wait to get mine done but it may be a while. Won't have any sewing time until Saturday and that will only be after I do some grocery shopping. For some reason my DH would like some food in the house. Finally finished birthday gifts and also need to get started on Christmas ones especially those that need to get mailed.
    Thank you Judy. This was my first mystery quilt and really enjoyed it.

    My DH mother has said just a week ago gee she knows I do embroidery and sure would love some hand embroidered pillow cases. uh sure. I do embroidery but not much these days. I had no one picked out for the mystery quilt so .. guess who is getting a quilt instead. Steve tells me she will absolutely love the colors.. good for her. lol.. one day i will go shopping and buy all my own fabrics. FANTASY shhhh don't see that happening soon but a good fantasy. In the mean time its work with what you have at hand. I actually didnt reverse those colors when I picked which one was good for A and which one of the two was good for C/d well that is what i chose way back in the early stages. hindsite and all that right> then the c/d would have been way too dark purple with that green no way.. similiar color values and all. oh well it sure was fun making and guessing and now it will have a home. Marybeth I will keep you in mind. i have a couple ufos that might well come visit you. Donating to the veterans is a worthy worthy cause. I will have to go look and see what I might come up with.

    thought, i would just nose at 4:30 this morning and not sign in, BUT

    cindy, that is so amazing. love the colors, and the quilting. wish i could do that, or afford to have that done. when i get someone to do my quilts for me, i get them to do easy, panagrams, or etc. just 40,50, or 60 $ that way. or i do them myself. but could not even begin to do that kind of quilting. started a craftsy quilting class, but didn't finish it, because i broke my arm/shoulder last winter. supposdly, the class is a 'forever' class. just sign back in and do some more. have meant to do that, and see if it really is a 'forever' class.
    RED AND WHITE. wow. classy

    mary todd, there is a V.A. hospital in ann arbor. i think, i will check them out. i would luv to give something to a lady vet. wonder, if they would see that it got right to a 'lady vet?"

    good to see i'm not the only one keeping vampire hours! your quilts are great, ladies! i'm glad i didn't make mine all polka dots as i had planned! now i will look for some solids to mix with the dots. double dots in hst's and bright colors might be even to much for me!
    thanks for the reminder of female vets! i feel dumb not to have realised that on my own. i'm sure they could do with some pick-me-ups, too.

    The Craftsy classes are forever, so you can go in & watch & learn from the beginning or pick a chapter to do. I just took Kimmy Brunner's class on templates & Cindy Needhams class too. Annie's has started doing quilting tutorial videos also. Not many so far, but some interesting ones. Go back in & finish. I'd love to see your progress.
    Thanks for the kudos! I had a lot of fun quilting this one. I understand cost constraints, but sometimes a quilt just calls out for more than something simple. Believe it or not, they'll talk to you for design. Grab your pencil & paper & just start doodling. You'd be amazed at what you can transfer from pencil to machine! Just have fun!

    Oh my Cindy, you outdid yourself - that is just gorgeous. I've got mine ready to set together, it's different color choices for me, think I'm going to like it. Brat, and anyone else in question about their choices - you'll be surprised how different it will look quilted.. As a sew buddy told me one time "don't EVER not finish a top"....I've tried to live by that and it works..lol Great job everyone.

    I don't post a whole lot, but do read the postings. Thanks Judy - I've made all your mysteries, can't wait til the next one...;o)

    Esther, yours is beautiful too! It's amazing the difference it makes to get it all put together. You chose the perfect color for that small border.

    I love the red/white quilt. It came out just right.

    haylillian, the pink is very pretty.

    I am to the 9 patches. My F-C looks too dark, but I anxious to get it together, so I'm going ahead with it.

    I think standing back is a big key to whether you like it.. squint see if the colors work for you kinda thing..

    The pink and white and brown how wonderful like a valentine with chocolates! she will LOVE it but if by chance its not her colors send it right over it could easily be my new favorite colors! you guys ARE SO FAST.. I have now five big blocks sewn together after a nap maybe a few more? toss up between put up Christmas stuff or put up blocks or really what I need to do is bind so I can hit the mail by Friday with a couple goodies.. and oh dear how time flies!

    I know I can I know I can... keep it up even I might believe it.

    Oh my goodness, I haven't been able to get online for most of the week, and find that I missed a lot! All the quilts posted are fabulous!
