Lovely fabrics, IB. Isn't it amazing how each new border completely changes the quilt?

Carrie, love your border. It reminds me of stitches of ribbon around the quilt.

Good job, everyone! We are almost there.

Wow! It really is quit a day for finishes. Carriem, love the blue and all the details.
Ice, lovely way to show movement and again, I love the colors and detail.

Mona, I agree with previous comments, the dark blue really sets off the gold and honey comb. Thank you. It's beautiful and I can't wait to see it in person.

Bug, glad you like it.
It is amazing how much different the colors look in person.

oh! That's funny! stumbling out of the lurker arm chair! lol

Bugaroo, again, as I said before, nice job on those half stars. That was a great idea!
Ice, That blue background was an excellent choice. It brings out the center and ties in so well. That watercolor fabric is beeeautiful!
carriem, you did the same with the blue background, what a good choice that was. The calm plain color looks good after the busy print of the previous round.
Mona, your choice to leave all the multiple colors and stick with blue and gold and browns looks like a good idea to me. A nice balance.
Great job, girls!

Love all the finishes!

Carrie, I like how your round complements the others.

I'm hoping to start on travelinggramma's top next week. Here is a sneak peak at what has been taking up my sewing time lately.

The components are assembles and I'm putting together the four corners right now. The fun part will be fitting them together with the large four pointed start that goes in the middle and extends out to the edges of the diagonal border. I've managed to use up all of my border fabric and the coordinating print. One of the hardest parts of this is that I decided to have the outer square and diagonal borders interlock - did not realize what a pain that would be when I designed it that way. And the quilt is not square, so I've got to pay attention to that too.

Mona, you can mail any time. :) I am really not sure what I will do with Bugaroo's quilt yet...I am sure once I have it in hand it will come to me.

CarrieM, I really like your border.
As soon as I write in the journal I will mail it out.

I am repeated everyone's WOW! Macybaby, that looks so regal!

Hi gang, wanted to let you know that Jaba's son Greg has posted news of her in the Boom threads. He said she has had three strokes in the past week!! She is currently in the hospital. Please keep her and her family in your prayers. If you have anything to send to her, just hang on to it and contact Travelingrama to see what she wants to do with it. Luckily we are close to the end, so there won't be an abundance of extra work on any one person. If you'd like to volunteer to finish Jaba's commitment to the RR group, please let Travelingrama know.

Thank you for your kindness and understanding!
