    I like the one on the right because I think the white disrupts the pattern. Or, I wonder how it would look with just the 2 blenders and the Santa on the green background? I am sure whatever you choose will be great. I love the quilt - puts me in the Christmas mood after several days of 100+ degree weather!

    I vote to the fabrics on the right! The added fabric detracts from the quilt.......my opinion only!

    I like them both. If left l'd bind in the red or green, if right then bind in the white. Whatever you decide will look beautimus!!

    paintme judy, just right. I thought the topper had enough design to stand on it's own so needed very limited quilting and in my opinion I think yours did too. very nice

    Cindy, this is a project I designed 2 years ago for a SIL. When I found it a couple months ago, I knew I needed to get it done before I started something else. But when trying to put the squares together, I discovered that my cutting had not been as accurate as I thought. So I made a design change ripping out all of the sewing. Now I need to finish it and take it to MI when we go in 3 weeks.

    Thanks to all for input. I agree the white/gold fabric takes away from the look, but I didn't like the 4 together. Irish, I'll try 3 tomorrow and see how that looks. If I get this put together, I might even have enough fabric for a pillow. Oh, I'm getting ahead of myself. Focus - focus - focus.

    How do you print out the instructions with pictures included without all junks included? I tried printable version but it does not include the attached pictures.

    I highlight and then copy what I want to save and then paste it into text edit. You might have word or works or something else. Save it and then print it.
    I hope this helps.

    Ugh, ok. I was hoping there'd be a pdf somewhere or a better way to do it than this or printable version.

    Maybe there is and I don't know about it. If you can wait until tomorrow someone else might chime in with a better answer.

    there isn't a better way than copy and paste. since this is judy's pattern, she can give her permission for someone to turn the instructions into a pdf and post to this thread or she can do that herself. it is up to her.

    I tried the copy/paste and sometimes would get some of the comments printed as well. So finally, I copied/pasted and sent it to email. Then I'd check it to make sure it only had what I wanted to be printed. That is my best way to make sure I don't get a lot of extra printing that isn't wanted.

    This was on another thread that I found the other day and it works. "You can make anything into a PDF with some free software. At home I use PDF Creator. You start to print like you normally would, but select pdf creator as the printer instead of your regular printer. You will then be prompted with some default information about the document, which you can edit if you want, and then for a filename/location to save the pdf. You can download PDF Creator from SourceForge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/ Just remember to look for the PDF creeator option on your drop down printer box. This works very well with tutorials that you want to save and don't want all the comments and ads. Have fun with it and good luck. Retta

    Here if my finished Mystery Quilt. I love the way it turned out. I stitched in the ditch around the inner and outer stars and then did free motion meandering in the pinks and the border. That was a first for me, and although it is far from perfect, I am really happy with the way it turned out. I attached 2 prints - the first is the whole quilt and the second is an up close of the free motion quilting. Can't wait for the next Train Ride.

    I agree, sans the white it looks awesome, white pulls away from the effect~

    I really like your quilt, Chester, it turned out awesome. I am almost done, I was running behind, I got side tracked and had to wait for a Freighter of UFO's to pass, but now I am back on track!

    Will post pictures later, my camera is still buried in back of PU trying to get stuff put away after camping trip!

    Here is mine--finally. It still needs quilted. Not sure what to do for that. I really had a great time doing this. I had purchased the charm packs when I first began quilting in 2010. Didn't know what I was going to do with them. I like the way they turned out. Thanks for looking.
