    Gorrrrgeous da'rlin'!!! I love the finished look! I can see some of your lovely hand stitches and you know I love the machine designs. I still don't know how you got the thing done in that heat....You know you need to find a really great hiding spot for when you have "certain" guests come visit...certainly the guest room will NOT work!

    Elle this is fantastico! And I don't envy you with that draped all over you in a Spanish summer! Must have been like having a sauna at the same time! LOL

    PS regarding the thimble - I had the same thing and hated thimbles til I tried this one http://www.cottonpatch.co.uk/acatalog/thimbles.html scroll right down, it's called Roxanne's thimble. It's really comfortable, I even gone off to the loo and forgot I was wearing it! Luckily haven't dropped it down there yet. :mrgreen:

    Beautiful quilt...fantastic fabric selection and done so quickly! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous creation.

    PS I like the look of the Roxanne thimble...I had a very comfy Japanese made leather and coin thimble...unfortunately the dog ate it when he was a puppy (death to the thimble...but puppy survived!).

    Thanks Kathryn for that link havenīt seen that before will have a go, however I am never ever ever ever going to quilt a whole quilt again I am going to use the quilt as you go method, Especially for my Dear Jane quilt.
    Yes it was like being in a sauna I did it mainly in the early morning or late evening but it was still hot and I developed a heat rash which was horrible.
    thanks for your love comments.

    As for selecting the fabrics I didnīt, truly I didnīt. I was donated by a dear friend on this board nearly all of those materials so I just stuck my hand in the box and pulled out a fabric. It really worked and I then put the ones together that looked best.
    One of my dogs when she was a puppy, loved cotton reels to chew,and I wonīt tell you how many reels she has ruined. She looks now but darenīt touch, so each time she doesnīt touch she is told what a good girl she is and made a real fuss of.

    Beautiful. I have been working on a hand quilt for a king size bed for 20+ yra. Of course it has been stored for much of the time.

    The only reason this one got done so quickly is I plan to show it at our Clubīs annual show. It spurred me on so to speak.

    Ahem! I KNOW you aren't referring to me! lol

    Elle, it's gorgeous! You did a magnificent job and it's beautiful!
    There's no way I would pinch that one from you. I know how long you worked on it and the "aches and pains" that are associated to it. It's yours dear, all yours. I might want to cover up with it tho. lol
