    Belfrybat I think you will be surprise when that is quilted, you'll be amazed. Mamahen your "speckles" look amazing, they really make that quilt. Great job both of you.

    I just finished the one before this one. Haven't figured out pictures from this new phone. Really like how both this one and the one before came out. The other one I added borders on the ends to make more lap quilt size (44 x 56). And am going to add borders to this scrappy one so it will fit a twin bed. Did the 12 block version. Am thinking about using a fairly narrow dark rust (if there is enough of it ) for the inner border then maybe continuing with scrappy for the wider border.

    Well I have it done and yesterday I sandwiched it. I made mine a 3X3 setting. Today I begin the dreaded quilting! Oh I love piecing Oh I dislike the quilting - how can this be. Anyone else feel this way?

    Instead of quilting perhaps I'll fuss with the instructions on how to post a picture

    No I hope to get this finished as Thursday we take off for Phoenix get this: 2dogs, 1 cat, 2 humans with our new to us camper - does Chevy Chase come to mind?

    Just occured to me that my 40 something niece, living in Phoenix, was married about 9 months ago and if I can get my Scrappy quilted it just might be a nice little snugglie for the newly weds she'll be surprised and will think AuntieL is wonderful. My sister, her mom will be surprised too as the quilt I made for her was very precise and a little on the victorian side. I love surprises.

    Love everyones quilts - love the pictures. This is just a great quilt pattern and sure can be used in lots of ways. I'm going to try one on the small side then on the larger size I like to get the charm squares and they are mostly 5" and I just hated cutting them down to the 4-1/2 so we will see. Also how about doing a D9P with this setting - I'm getting carried away ADHD? think so.

    Think I'll ask DH if he knows how to post the pic! Later all

    I have added a section to the Quilt Gallery for all the pictures of these completed quilts: CLICK HERE TO GO TO IT

    I've attempted to copy all the photos from this thread, and from the pictures thread that Judy started, and I'll keep watching both threads for any posts of newly completed tops. Please send me a PM if I missed one.

    I'm machine quilting mine -- I decided to use high-loft poly batting, but I had to get rid of some wrinkles and lumps in it. So I spritzed it and fluffed it in the dryer. Now, it's so "lofty" that quilting is a bit of a challenge! I hope to have it done this weekend (wish me luck)!

    Here's mine. I am not ready to quilt it. Oh, and thanks for the ride. It was fun. But seriously, thanks for all the work you put into the directions and answering questions.

    Thank you. I assure you it was completely accidental. But I've left it on the design wall and it's growing on me. I'll hopefully get it sandwiched and quilted this week.

    i am new and have been following along quietly in the background. i am not sure how to load a pic. but i wanted to say thanks for the great mystery. my top is done and i realized if mental sanity was determined by the variety in our stash, i would have multiple personality syndrome for sure, but it will be fun for someone to look at.

    When I post pictures I have never been able to get the tree icon to work. I click go advanced then scroll down to manage attachments, then upload image. You need to either take your pictures at a small size image or make them smaller on your computer which I don't know how to do. Good luck with posting pictures. Thanks for the fun Judy

    LOL mom-6 ....progress.....has anyone else noticed that the sound quality on cell phones is about the same as the old party lines in the 1940's ...which was slightly better than two tin cans and a string. Oh, and the pictures are like an early kodak brownie camera. progress

    I quite like quilting but am pretty rubbish at it lol. I quilted the squares and round the edges yesterday and thought it looked great then I turned it over - disaster- pleats all over, it then took me twice as long to unpick the very worst offenders (I can live with some slight puckering) so at some point today I will try again. I will try to post a picture once I am totally finished, have not had much luck with getting photographs to load since the change over.

    I know I'll have to add another border to it to hang off my queen bed. I think I'll add 5" all around of the dark green used inside to help bring them out too. (I used 5" squares and "guessed" at the extra sizes)

    Thanks for all the work on the clues. We're pretty happy with the way it turned out.
