    So...I was going to do Attic window block..but didn't like it. Ripped it apart. So I tried one color of blue with the fleur-de-lis which is black with gold and purple. Then I realised that I have to fussy cut the fleur-de-lis to line it up right. But it is a learning experience. Be honest and PLEASE let me know what you think. THANKS :lol:

    Got any gold to substitute for the Green? Or a Purple? I like the Bottom Blue print better.

    I'm doing the happy dance - got my quilt home today. Thank you all for the hard work you put into it. Hubby thinks I need to add more rows and borders and make it fit the bed in the guest room. Will think about that. If I do, I'll be sure to post pictures so you can see it.

    Thanks again, everyone.

    Boop - you may be last - but I think you are working on the most striking quilt this group put together..

    They are all fabulous - but the Mardi Gras quilt just takes it.

    Obsessed: Your quilt is in the mail. I sewed and ripped and sewed and ripped and I just went with this last choice. My husband was like the judges on Just desserts. Times up, hands up and step back. Well maybe more like Timm Gunn from Project runway when he calls everybody to runway and tellsthem they must stop right now, LOLBut my squares look weird compared to everybody elses. Yes, this Mardi Gras does take the Row Robin 11 award. I think I would keep it if I were you and just say 'This was going to be yours but...' lol. It was fun working on all of them. Thanks for letting me be part of this 'family'.

    Wednesday is tour big reveal day. That is tomorrow, I had to walk it around and show some neighbors. Everyone is totally in love with it. I think I may have screwed it up though. So out of balance. Didn't realize until I had it done and hung it up to look at it :oops:

    Wouldn't you know the mail would be late on the day you KNOW you are going to get something you can't wait to see. Happens all the time.

    Late? I wish the mail were late. The postal carrier didn't show up at all! I can't believe that today of all days this would happen. We live on a little island with only a few occupied houses, and I can only imagine that our regular carrier was out sick or something today and so we just didn't get service. Can you believe it!

    THIS.IS.KILLING.ME!

    You are really killing me now. I could have drove it to ya. I should of. Can you imagine. It would be like winning a sweepstakes. The doorbell would ring. I would wait with breath held. You would open the door. I would be standing there with balloons and flowers and yell "Obsessed you didn't win the million dollar sweepstakes but here is your quilt. LOL
    :lol:

    Ack! You should have driven it here! I would have gotten a kick out of that!

    I didn't post because I didn't want to worry you, but it is not here yet. I'm not too worried - I'm sure it is just my incompetent post office that can't figure out how to deliver things. Whatever happened with the mail yesterday must have thrown them all off kilter. I did get mail today though. I'm sure it will find its way home in the next few days...

    Sitting here twiddling my thumbs...

    The mail just came and ... it's here! It's here!

    It is so much more beautiful in person than I could imagine from the pictures. Just perfect - each and every block. Once I get the borders on and it ready for quilting I will post a picture.

    Thank you so much to all you lovely ladies for contributing to this beautiful quilt!

    Next row robin... I will be keeping the quilt just for me! It is going to be so hard to give this one away.... I'm sure my stepbrother and his wife will appreciate it though. Last Christmas I made her just some little zipper cosmetic bags and she really liked them. They are the kind of people who understand and appreciate handmade gifts.

    Glad you finally got it, Lara. It really is a beautiful quilt. Will be looking forward to seeing what borders you put on it.

    This was a really fun group of people to work with. Thank you all for your hard work.
