    I'm confused,

    I thought Robert was the one collecting lanterns. Is it you, Robert or someone else. Please clue me in.
    Thanks, Sue

The reason was budget cuts and after being there that lond I was at the top of my pay scale. A little later in the year we found out that my wife has breast cancer and she really needed me to go with her to the appointments and it became very clear I was laid off for a reason.
    I will be praying for you. Settle in, Your heavenly Father will provide for you and yours.
    All the best

    The same happened to my son. God will take care and provide. I pray for the whole world at night because I know we all need it.

    It is me. It seems that it is a likeable pattern and theme and our family of swappers seem to like it alot. That is awesome. The lanterns I made for Toriabelle was showing the group about the black areas on how I would like my laterns, it can be a patterned black, blenders etc, but I want to keep the black consistent in the pattern as I have a'Vison" for my quilt and black is one of the driving forces.
    OK, there's the lowdown.....LOL
    thanks for asking.

    I am the lantern Man, some in the group saw the pattern and really like it. That's awesom, can't wait to see everyones lanterns. I like the black on mine as in the pattern and the small 1 in stripes, or the 1" stripes in a dark contrasting shade with the middle bar. I know this is clearer than a buttonhook in wellwater. LOL

    Onward.......Here are the blocks for my fall theme. Question....What color sashing and border do you think I should use. There is lots of oranges in them but would more orange be too much? Any suggestions?

    Hmm - good question. You have a lot of colors there. I would use a dark brown for one of your choices or maybe for just a narrow inside border to frame. Don't know what to suggest for sashing or for bigger border. They are gorgeous blocks. What is the least dominant color? Orange, to me, is like red - hard to match. I see a smattering of green in there. That is a toughie. Wish I were better at making those decisions. I think that's why I have so many unfinished tops.

    It is amazing, afire with color. If it was mine, I would use a dark burnt orange, Sage Green or Rust. And since it is a fall theme, maybe a large outer border of Large Fall Leaves in every warm fall color you could think of.
    I know what ever you do will be perfect.

    That's going to be beautiful. Black might make a nice sashing. It would both frame them well and be fall-ish. On the other hand, I see some pretty consistent hints of raspberry and of green. Those might work well. I don't know if the picture is representing the colors well though. If you look at the picture on the board I think you'll see what I mean.

    My scrappy BOM quilt from the swap theme before I did stars. Did it in the strip quilt method that I used on the batik quilt from BOM that I posted a few months ago. Since the front blocks are scrappy, figured I'd use a scrappy back, too. It was meant to be a summer blanket, used a very low loft batt but still too warm for summer. Since it is a blanket, the ends were angled to make the tuck-in easier.

    Finally finished this, and now I can get to the star quilt!

    Back is a little ugly, but it gets the job done!

    I vote for a deep burnt orange and dark brown, not sure which should be sash and which to be border. I think i personally would go with burnt orange border. Gorgeous fall quilt, Florence.
