    GracefulAnn, I LOVE your Flamingo block. Can you share where you got the pattern? Or did you just sketch it out yourself. I would love to make one of them for a different quilt that I am trying to re-size and make bigger.

    I just saw the pic on pinterest and printed it. Scanned it into my computer and printed the size I needed. I've seen it lots of places and I've wanted to make one for a long time. This was the perfect opportunity. Batiks are awesome for it.

    Thanks Anna, for pointing me in the right direction. That block is just so cute. Actually all your new additons are darling. Your sons suggestions of the surfboards really work and are stinking cute to boot.

    Wonderful! The colours in your borders set it off and pull it together. Great job!

    GracefulAnn that is a very Beautiful Quilt Top Love the Design and colors, I haven't even started on mine yet, not for sure how to do it I have never tried to put blocks together like that before, I do have to add some to some of my blocks, I was thinking I could check with my LQS lady to see if she could help me figure out what to do.

    Ladies~ I am trusting my quilt top to a professional quilter so I can use it sooner. They offer services for every step but I plan to bind it myself. I've never used one before and I'm so nervous about what I will receive back. I helped pull the stitches out from a quilt that was long-arm quilted poorly before and it was horrible. The top was almost ruined. I'll post a pic when I get it back. Not sure how long it's going to take!

    GracefulAnn I trust you had a good look at this long-armer's work before you handed over your lovely quilt so I am sure they will do a great job. I'm looking forward to seeing the result.

    Love how all the blocks look put together - everyone did a great job!
    One day, when I am frayed and strained and drizzle at the end, please someone cut a square and put me in a quilt that I might keep a child comforted.

    DeeCee I vetted this quilt shop through so many people in my guild. They swear by it. It will take them a bit to get to mine since everyone is pushing to get tops done in time for the show my guild is hosting in October. I'm hoping to get it by September.

    Sounds as though it will be well done. Are you thinking of entering the show also?

    Not this year. We host a bi-annual show so I will enter it as a group quilt then. I absolutely love how the top turned out and I kow my quiltibg will never do it justice. Thanks for your kind words and support.

    It's finally put together. Had one other that needed completion before I could tackle this one. I will be taking it to the quilter next week. Sure enjoyed the swap and hope to do more in the future.

    DeltaMS I love your top!!!! The border is so pretty and ties everything together. Doesn't it feel great to have one in the checked (complete) column?

    DeltaMS, I don't know how I missed the posting of your finished top. It is a wonderful setting! And the blocks shine beautifully. Thank your for sharing it.
