    Thinking of putting a paper pieced bee in the center of all the flowers when I get to that point.

    I still haven't got a clue as to a decent quilting pattern. It will be a bugger with all those seams.

    Thanks Amma! I've already found a bee in a quilting magazine that looks a little easier than the one they had on the link, but I appreciate it. I went ahead and book marked it for future reference.

    I might try and piece it on Sunday, though think I should go ahead and finish all the D9's first. :D

    I'm not sure what your winters are like but here in New England I like to have a snuggly or 2 in the car. :D What a fun quilt.

    Steve instead of quilting it why don't you just tie it. I think that it would look great as a tied quilt.

    You make a single stitch with a heavier thread and tie it into a knot at specific intervals to hold the front, batting and back together. This technique is used instead of hand or machine quilting.

    Ah, I thought that was called tacking. I did this with a church group my Aunt is a member of while on vacation last summer.

    I love how you so excited about quilting and have people in mind for quilts. Also that you are taking your projects to work!

    It looks real nice so far and yes, I believe a child or a lot of grown-ups, would like it!
