I finally put the borders on this one and it is now folded and stacked to be quilted. I am not particularly pleased with this quilt but I finished anyway.

I think when you quilt it, it will come alive. I love blue so is a keeper in my book:)

I am hoping for that--to come alive. Will be thinking on how to quilt it for a while. I did not bother to iron it completely out as I knew it was going on the bottom of about 6 other quilts to be quilted. Any suggestions on how to quilt it are welcome.

Yea, it's finished! Now you can start something new. It is a very pretty top and will look so nice when you get it quilted.

I love it! Maybe quilted with snow flakes, they are very impressive, although, I cannot do them, LOL! As a matter of fact, the glacier is out of my league also, LOL! It is very pretty!

I love it! What a great pattern - did you come up with it yourself? Maybe you could quilt some vertical lines and ledges, etc. like there are when looking at actual glaciers?

I am really glad you finished it.

I think it will shine when it is quilted, nice glacier colours and the border looks great. I'm with scowlkat...jagged lines, mainly vertical...perhaps snowflakes or whatever on the borders, maybe even some metallic Thanks for sharing with us...and would love to see it quilted.
