    Very cute. Good save, sometimes you just have to walk away and start fresh. I really like how it turned out.

So this little booger sat in the closet for a few months. While cleaning I found it and decided to try and fix it. I had to cut out a section about 6" wide where the applique is now. If you look close you can see my seam. With all the trouble I opted for raw edge applique. Glad its finished, finally! Thanks for looking.

    ADORABLE !!

    Don't point out the booboos, they don't show (to me) and your quilt is wonderful. Lovely colors, nice work. Good for you having what it takes to finish it up. Good job!!

    Love this pattern. It looks relatively simple but I'll bet there's a hidden glitch somewhere. How difficult, really? Your colors are right on and so pretty together.

    Looks very nice. I've never seen and argyle quilt but it is very pretty. I love the applique it really adds too the quilt. I'm sure it'll be loved and no one will know you made a mistake but you and of course all of us you told. Sue

    Making the binding the same color as the darker squares took away from the fact that the outer points weren't crisp and pointy. Would I make it again, NO!
