    I bought a kit for this quilt from Bonnie Blue at the Long Beach quilt show a little while back. I've been working on it for a couple of weeks, and just finished the top tonight (but not without having to fix a few blocks I somehow got turned wrong or something!) If you see anything out of place, please let me know before I layer it for hand quilting-- I'm so tired of looking at it I think I really can't see it anymore!

    This quilt is about 64x64. If you look at the Bonnie Blue website you'll find the kit. I used Thangles to do all those triangles--they made it SO much easier! I know I want to hand quilt it, but I'm still pondering on exactly what I want to do. Any suggestions will be appreciated!!!

    Harmony...for what it is worth...hand quilting would be lost in the busy-ness of the fabric...just my thought....

    Thanks for your info on the quilt it is lovely

    that's fantastic!

    but... sticking my nose in where it doesn't belong.... have you considered a border all around? Even a 4" border would make it big enough for a double bed throw and would 'frame in' the whole thing....

    MOO and don't yell at me...

    Love the quilt. Sorry no ideas on the quilting. I would stay away from "in the ditch" quilting - it will get lost in the fabric and hand quilting is so time consuming (and beautiful) that you want it to show. Maybe browse some online quilt stencil catalogs for inspiration.
    What type of frame are you using to quilt?
    Happy quilting,
    Jo

    Outstanding, a border would give you more size unless you want it this size. Hand quilting is always good. I would use an all over simple design. :D

    :D :D :D Beautiful!! You did a great job.
    I understand your getting sick of it. that's why I have several projects going at once so I can go to something else when I get tired of one. Keep up the great work!
