If you are finished with round 5 of a quilt, go ahead and send it home! Let those robins fly home, as Givio says...

Congratulations group #1 on LeeAnn’s quilt. She started out with a darling center of flowers and a cutea bird and then surrounded with squares and hst then adding those flowers and then came the peacock and birdies and and arrows and a perfect colorful border to bring it together – just wow! I doubt LeeAnn had any idea of how her center would turn out!!

Mary! Those colors really set it off great! It really warms up the top. Nice choices there!

Mary, I always love what you do. What a nice bright and strong ending.

I showed your quilt to my Tuesday group and everyone loved it. But they all had the same question that I do -- what's next?? Told them I wasn't allowed to just put on a solid piece of black fabric, so they asked how many pieces would it take to qualify.

Well... I think I have an idea. That song seems completely incompatible but is still in my head and I think it's starting to work on me, even the colors in the video. The song is All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor -- every inch is perfect from the bottom to the top!

and if you need another dose, there's the Star Wars Parody -- It's all about that base and no rebels!

Sometimes, something simple is all it needs to finish. Love the Megan Trainor song!!!

Oops, forgot to say we need a picture before you send the quilt home. Please lay the quilt out on a flat surface, such as floor or bed, and take a picture to post to the group. Givio is keeping a photo album for us and will need to grab those photos out of the thread. Thanks!

I've been playing around with configurations and I think I have a winner. I wanted to add some of the black that Carrie requested.

After looking at the photo I think I might add a 2.5 border on the ends before I add my "round".

So pretty! Kudos on such a beautiful pretty green ending, and also loving that yellow border on the birdies! Hugs!!!
