    Elle, hold off until after Christmas. I'm putting a stop on my mail while we are gone and I don't want to chance any packages/squishys sitting in the mailbox or by the door. I do have someone coming in 2 times a day for the cats and they will be checking the mail, but I don't want them to have to worry about getting it. If you mail it out after Christmas, I'll be back and won't have to worry.

    I have a general question....If the block you are working on has applique on it...and you'd like to add some applique with your border....do you have to use the same technique? Opinions please???????

    my opinion is no, you do not have to use the same technique.
    That is the purpose of this sampler, I think, to share all our talents.

    In the guidelines, it was noted that you can use any technique.. just do your best work...

    So, it is entirely up to you.. if you think it will add to the quilt.. go for it....

    mixed techniques go quite nicely in a quilt...

    Sazu, I am in Chatham Kent, soooo cold. We have to catch the flight this morning and I mean early morning 3AM, so its going to be horrible driving we have had a lot of fog too.

    Can't wait to get back to Spain, don't think I will ever moan about the spanish weather again. LOL Yes you can come back with me, willing to get up at 3am, but you gotta hurry and pack. LOL

    :oops: :oops: I'm blushing but I'm soooo happy that you like it. Of course I did run into your center dimension like I said I was going to. With only the 3" to work with....the effect just wouldn't have worked I don't think. I just added some more color to it so the next person in line will have even more fun working with it! I think you will like your quilt when you get it back..but you know it did start out pretty darn good :lol:

    2Doods - Here is what I added to your center block. I haven't mailed it yet so I can redo something if you don't like it.

    The hard part here was deciding what to do. I didn't want to detract from your beautiful work.
