    2010 Christmas quilt in the making. It measures abt 70 x 70 right now but am gonna add 2 more borders (think light green and dark green to "frame" it-see 2nd pic) It is a lot brighter than the pic is showing. Any additional suggestions are more than welcome. Will shadow quilt (outline) the figures and then try my hand @ FMQ in the borders. Hope ya'll like. This one is for US! (I think! tee hee) :roll:

    Beautiful quilt and the greens for the borders should look very nice with it. I like all the fabrics you have in the 2nd pic.

    Beautiful quilt. Very restful. If you want to keep it, don't show it to anyone before the holidays. :lol:
