    Deck the Halls Quilt Top Done Finally.

    Well the top is finally completed, but was not happy that I had to cut bottom banner more than required. I also had to make it 7" wide instead of the 5" it should have been. I don't know if you can see in pictures but I colored the bottom banner in a quilt hoop and loved the color more than the top, came out a little darker. I may have to do some touch up?? Thanks for looking.

    I would think that once it is quilted, everything will look OK.

    This is utterly charming! You did a fabulous job with the coloring and embroidery. And I love the border fabric. The sashing, too, is great. Wonderful work!

    so soft and pretty looking
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    We are always way too critical of our own work...your quilt is gorgeous..often when quilted, any minor flaw will be invisible...don't worry...you've done a great job so far...it will be a great quilt when done..don't hesitate..just go for it!
