    What a stunning quilt! Great work! Make more! I think a black border would frame it nicely.

    WOW! That is very striking :!: LOVE IT! I like the idea of a black border too. You could use all the colors in the binding for a little touch.
    Thanks for sharing!!!!

    3000 pieces!!! Yikes!!! Sure was worth every cut you made and seam you sewed. I think black border with jewel tones in the corners. Whatever you decide it is and will remain gorgeous.

    Thank you everyone for your kindness and wonderful compliments! You are all so encouraging!!!:D :D :D

    I've decided on 6" black borders with 9-patch HSTs in the corners using the jewel tones adn black. Thank you all for your input, it really helped me!

    I'll post a picture when I'm done.

    WOW! That's awesome! I can't believe you did that so quickly! I bought a book for that a few months ago. I'd like to do mine with deep navy background and scrappy for the rest...hopefully I can get to it after Christmas. :)

    How does this look? It's a little wonky up on the wall. I think Variegated thread and maybe some vines on the border. I'm not quite sure what to have quilted on the jewels - any ideas? I'm stumped with this one. Thanks for your help! :D

    Could maybe do a cross-hatch in the entire middle of the quilt. And I like the vines idea for the borders.

    Nice choice for the corners and border!
    Show us again with the quilting PLEASE!
    SO BEAUTIFUL!
    Someone mentioned a book. Was this pattern in a book?
    Don't know if I could convince myself to attempt that many pieces but I would sure like to take a peek and consider it.

    Thank you so much!

    I printed the pattern off the internet, Eleanor Burns on her show also did this quilt, but with a white background. It was beautiful and so crisp looking.
