    The buyer of the sunflower quilt chose the gold, which I would have chosen too.

    Here's Basket Weave. It's for sale, but I would keep it for the back. :lol: :roll: I wanted to bind it in the outer border blue, but I didn't have enough, so I felt the scrappy look was a good 2nd choice. I like it with the binding better than without. The binding matched the back too!!

    What I regret is thinking I would attempt quilting this myself--so to prevent it from getting too big, I left 3-4 squares off. RATS! I wish they were on the quilt. Ah well, too late now I'd say. :roll:

    You did a great job on the quilting!! Love the scrappy border! Did you hug the sunflower quilt before it left for its new home?

    Oh remember ladies--I didn't quilt these--the same woman who quilted the barn quilt and Sunny Day (I like naming my quilts :roll: ) quilted these.

    That's a black center, Izy. I was hesitant to use it, but it does look good. I'd like to try that pattern with something else.

    I'm happy to sell the Sunflower one. The young lady who's buying it has a guest room all in sunflowers--so it's perfect for her. And remember I spent the $$ on Mark's CW fabrics. I like to work it like that. :wink:

    I have so so so many quilts here--that's why I'm selling. It's either sell or stop quilting--YIKES :!: :!: :shock: Easy decision. I've given so many away--even many to folks I've never met! My daughter says I've given enough away. :-) So--it's time to make some money off more than the Talk-About-Quilt. The $$ will go to support my horse passion. :D

    I did quilt part of another barn wall hanging today! It's so much fun! I'll post it when it's totally done--binding and all. That's a gift. And there's a wedding ragged flannel to give away.... then that's it for now.

    Once I start my vacation you are all going to be sick of me posting!! :lol:

    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Weeellll, Harmony, Gypsy didn't come back into heat...which means she most likely is. Chloe's due to come in the first week in July... but I'll have blood tests done at 100 days after the last cover day to verify. I always like to know for sure. It will be a happy day to hear the vet say "both are pregnant!" IF they are, Gypsy is due April 20th and Chloe May 10th.

    Rosie and I have been working together for the last three days--and she's doing beautifully. I decided to sell Blessing... but will only let her go to the perfect home. :wink:

    Those are great! Nice quilting and color choices too!

    I had the same sunflower fabric. Made a lap quilt for Gramma, and she won't use it! "It's too nice!" LOL

    Those are a couple of really neat quilts. Are those BQ quilts? Nice quilting too, I might add.

    I love the quilting both your choice of fabrics and your quilters choice of pattern. Lovely quilts and good luck with future sales
    Did you get the 20000 like the lady a while back? Just curious.

    Hi Karla,
    Your quilts are just beautifal and your color choices are spectacular!
    I'm fairly new to quilting and would like to know 'what is a Talk About Quilt?' I've never heard of it and when I googled it got no answer.
    Thanks for sharing you photos...
    Dona

    Aww--thanks Dona, and everyone...

    Dona--the "Talk-About-Quilt" is one I created (sort of--it has common patterns)--it's an educational quilt for infants-age 4ish. I have a photo of it on my website--on the quilts for sale page. I made a brochure to go with it too.

    Thanks for asking. :-)
