I just loved this pattern and it seemed easy enough for a beginner. It was fun using my repro's too! The colors are more true in the picture where my shadow is! One day I'll learn how to shoot pictures! Now to tackle quilting. I'm scared, very scared! LOL!

I like it. It is really darling.

And I know how you feel about trying to quilt it yourself.

Mimisharon offered to give me lessons if I let her vacation here in Pensacola (at my home.) Maybe you can offer the same? LOL

This is a beauty! This may just be "the one" I'm looking for to use a particular assortment of scraps. You sure did a nice job. Sara

No pressure on your making a decision, Chele! It's a wonderful top, look at some of the quilting sights and maybe do a little practice thingee.

My favorite quilting word.......thingee!

Yep, going to Pensacola one of these days. She promised she's a good cook and we can quilt at the beach......what would keep me away? lol lol

Nancy, I used 10 different repro FQ's. The pattern is designed for fat quarters. The white is a white on white paisley. The middle bars end up being 2-1/4" x 4-1/4" each.

Thanks for all the feedback! I'm not sure how I want this quilted. Probably an all-over design. Puzzle pieces maybe? I may hire a long armer! I've only attempted stitch in the ditch.
