    I posted as a WIP a while back and got some fantastic advice in this post: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-90026-1.htm

    I thought I'd share the final product. I wasn't in love with this quilt until it was finished and now I'm quite proud of it. It's my first time doing anything besides stitch in the ditch. I'm donating it to a friend for a fundraiser for a women's realtor's organization. Thanks for looking.

    I love it! The border and quilting really set it off and make it look very ... inviting!

    That came out great! I wouldn't want to give it away? What size blocks did you use? I want to make one but I think the 10 inch might be too big. Yours look smaller.

    It's made from a charm squares -5", and turnovers for the outer border. These were given to me by my MIL and it was a challenge to create this. I'm surprised the turnovers held their shape after I'd sewn them together and ripped them apart a few times.

    Good-I bought layer cakes to make the 10 minute blocks but knew they were too big for what I wanted. I thought 5 inch might be too small so was going to cut them to 8 inch and use leftover for piano key border. I really like yours so just may do the 5 inch!
