    Naomi, your quilt reminds me of the song "You are my Sunshine". Used to sing it to DD when she was little. Love your top.

    Sunliten, Congrats on the beautiful little angel Julia! All the quilts are gorgeous. Someday when my DH feels a little better I'll be able to finish mine. I promise to show it.

    sunliten...congrats on your beautiful grt. granddaughter.

    Pam H...... I love the yellow sashing on your quilt......it really makes it just beautiful.
    Jaba......You are DONE!!!! Wow and it turned out beautiful. I love the color combination.
    Debquilts2.......How pretty with the red and then the dark blue sashing.
    Sulabug -------I like the pink or raspberry color and then the background is perfect.
    Mathteacher........I really like the Batik. I will have to try making one someday with that material. Haven't tried it yet.
    Naomi ryan - I agree that your quilt looks like a ray of sunshine and just makes me smile.

    finally got my table topper quilted. Thanks again, Jaba, for showing yours, I never would have done a meander on a star unless I had seen your top. I did stitch in the ditch on the baby quilt and wasn't too happy with it, looked blah.

    Love everyone's mystery....I had high hopes to work on mine, finally, at my quilt retreat, but, it was not to be. I had a present to make for a friend and it took most of my time, so my mystery will have to wait.....but I will make it. Hoping to finish it before the next mystery train leaves the station in the fall, or whenever!!

    Ladies - I'm off the subject but need advice. Working on a UFO and doing a braided border (first one) because I felt it needed something. On the right is the 4 fabrics from the squares and on the left is the 4 fabrics plus the one I used for the small border. Which one should I use? I have gone from one side to the other all afternoon.

    The mystery quilt is still in the pile to be quilted. This UFO I want to get finished so that when we go to Michigan I can take it and give it to the SIL for an early Christmas gift.

    My DGS & I both vote for the left. It picks up that other border & blends it.

    I'd get rid of the white. The color from the white border bleeds every time it touches. Then, I'd use the two blenders and my favorite Santa and try braiding with three. Using an even number is putting all reds on one side and all greens on the other. I think using three will distribute the colors better. Think of a braid in a head of hair.
