    I seem to have trouble posting. After I send, they disappear into cyberspace. Sorry. Anyway, I just finished quilting my yard sale GFG and I'm not sure that I picked the best design, but I just love how it looks. I especially like the leafy border and how the back looks. I didn't care for the yellow fabric, but it grew on me as I quilted. I just love this quilt and the quilter who pieced it -- whoever she is.

    I like it! Okay maybe bright yellow wouldn't be my first choice for background if I was doing it but I like that quilter's independant spirit. Yellow is such a happy colour in my opinion.

    The yellow put me off at first, then I realized that it really did make the flowers stand out. Your quilting is great. I, too, love the leaves.

    It is a tribute to the original Quilter. I love the yellow. People years back, were not afraid to use color. Sometimes they had to because that's what they had on hand.

    I like the quilting design you chose. Usually, I have a hard time
    with that.

    I do like the quilting design, and the fabrics. The back is beautiful too. How wonderful to bring that quilt top to life!

    That's a great quilting idea for a GFG. I may just have to steal your idea. You did a great job.

    Would love to see a pic of the entire front - the flower fabrics look old - how special. Your quilting is a nice tribute to original person who pieced it.
