    Hi Laters...I don't think I'll need any more of Joan's fabric but thank you. What I could use, Queenbarbiej, is the color dots on the selvage of your new Joan fabric...one set anyway. If you could cut off one set and mail it to me, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm trying out all kinds of arrangements. My main issue right now is what sashing color. I've tried every green I have (and I have dozens of varying shades) and the only one that seems to pull the blocks together is a dark green, but that wasn't my "vision" of it. I'd hoped to use the same color as Joan sent with her F8s but it doesn't seem to work with all the other greens as there are quite a variety. Her green works great with her floral but some greens next to hers just do not playing well together. Not at all! lol They're up on the design board and I rearrange them each time I see them. Guess I'm trying for perfection and that just ain't possible, at least not from me. LOL

    I'll take a look at the selvage and see what's there and mail it to you. I still have your address.

    Janice the selvage is on its way to you. Ladies I am done with my quilt. My feathers aren't perfect but I like it. I did the feathers in a multi purple thread. It was a little difficult to see when I was quilting. Second time doing feathers on a new to me Federal machine. The back of the quilt may look pinkish but it is actually purple. I hand dyed it that way.

    It’s beautiful Queen Barbie, great job on the feathers. Even though my tops were small I sent them off to becquilted along with 2 more tops. So they would get finished.

    I like doing all of the whole quilting process myself. Right now I have 3 quilts left. One to finish piecing and two to sandwich and quilt. I should be able to get all three done by the end of June. Then I will have at least one more to do and Christmas will be done.

    Queen--congrats on the finish! It looks great. How fun is it to see one's own block in someone's finished work?

    Janice, have you auditioned pinks for Joan's sashing?

    Zozee, no, not yet. I was working with greens when all this mess with mom started. I was hoping to keep the quilt from looking ultra feminine so that it might appeal to a wide group however pink will probably be the easiest to work with. I tried various shades of brown from the flowers but those overwhelm her blocks. When Queenbarbiejís selvage arrives, Iíll have some good shades to match.

    Janice If you are wanting to "de" pink it how about a soft metal grey w/ grey / white cornerstones like this

    The grey looks good, Kassaundra. Keeps it from from being ultra feminine and it lets the blocks take prominence.

    Janice, blessings as you serve your mom in so many ways . Iím she appreciates everything you do.

    You are welcome. I am glad I was able to help. Let me know if you need any of the fabric. I used about half a yard of it leaving 1.5 yards.

    Good morning, Boomers. I just posted over on Later about the next boom but I haven't forgotten about Joan's blocks. They're still up on my design board, exactly as they were before Mom became ill several weeks ago. I plan to get to the LQS this week or early next for sashing fabric and backing so I can get working on the quilt. With that and Boom 23, I think I'll start to feel more like myself. Just wanted to let you know Joan's quilt has not been forgotten.
