    Wow, Izy! That turned out beautifully! I love how you framed each block. I may have to borrow that idea for my crumbs.

    I agree with Chele. I like how you framed each block before sashing. That is one cheerful quilt. You must feel so proud. I'm sure that was a lot of work. Good job Izy! :)

    Thanks everyone for your lovely comments...you are so encouraging!!

    The blocks are 6" with the coloured border, this is only my second pieced top and I can tell you it gave me some grief trying to match up all those squares....alot of them are wonky even though every one was squared up with a 6" template before I added those coloured borders...well all in all I am pleased with the overall effect and I am sure when it is quilted your 'eye' wont be drawn along the lines so much...well I hope so :lol:

    I have pinned and microtacked it this evening, and decided on a lovely soft fine fleece for the backing, so tomorrow at the guild day, I can get on with the quilting!! :D

    beautiful quilt. i think i may have to try this.
    i especially like how you framed each block before adding sashing. really sets it off. just the perfect finishing touch.

    That's fantastic. Can I make one just like you! The colors are striking and I love the colorful little strip border around each block.

    I had to peek at it again--it's so artsy. I looked at the directions before and couldn't quite wrap my head around how to go about it. You make me want to try harder. :wink:
