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.
