    Bountiful blessings

    I finally got the sashings on the blocks to form the quilt top, now on to the borders. I will be adding 1/2 inch tiny teal (it is in the log cabins but for some reason looks blue in pic) then 3 inches of the dark brown then another 1/2 inch teal then 5 inches dark brown and bind it in the coral that is in the log cabins. I haven't decided on backing yet; there is a gorgeous southwest print online that would go so well on sale for $9 yd but even then it would be $50; I could use a wide back in a marbled dark brown and it would be much less; just do not have enough fabric left to do a pieced or clever back to match. Will post a pic when I get it all done (IF ever!) Want to thank all of you who have helped along the way but don't abandon me yet as I surmise I will be calling on you yet again. The pic is a little mis-shapen due to position on floor and colors are not quite on. The pot in the lower right hand corner is a copy of a pot in my cupboard that my son-in-laws grandmother hand made in Acoma. Thanks for looking.

    Oh, my.

    Please send this quilt to me.
    Because I really, really, really love it.

    Wow.

    The blocks, the colors, the sashing blocks (very cool).
    Everything.
    I love (and want) it all.

    I'm next in line. Could it be like a round robin and we pass it around? It belongs in a major quilt show!! We could even chip in for the backing! ;o)

    How inspiring. But I already have a long bucket list. Can I, too, get on the "send it to me list"????

    That is beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Thank you all of you for the kind words; no it couldn't be in a major quilt show, my skills are just not that good, this is my first hand turn applique; I agree, the design is beautiful but that credit goes to the designer, Betty Standiferd. I did learn a lot and may attempt making others; am just an outdoor girl for the most part. Thanks again.

    Gorgous quilt. I love the Southwest. Makes me homesick for Albuquerque, lived there only 5 yrs, but is more home then any place else. I will wait patiently in line to inherit it.

    Your quilt is wonderful. I have a wedding pot I bought in 1959 on the reservation north of Albuquerque, can't remember the name. I think its the only thing my girls will fight over when I'm gone.

    Thanks so much for the compliment! The wedding vase in this one represents the Isleta Pueblo, it is just south of Albuquerque and my SIL is half Isleta and half Acoma; each pot represents a different pueblo and most of them have a bit of history or meaning attatched, I think Betty did a wonderful job of design and research on this pattern. I will be happy when I can get back to working on it after the holiday's; we have Christmas tree farm so will be busy with that and all other holiday things until after. Thanks again. Merry Christmas to all!
