    I finished this quilt for my youngest son and I just got it back from the woman who did the long-arming. And, darn it, I didn't get pictures of the backing. It's a medium sage color. The quilter used a varigated thread, which adds an interesting look. I just have the binding to put on, but I don't know if I will go with the sage, or another color from the front. Sometimes I'm a slow thinker :roll:

    Great quilt-did you just pick the blocks you wanted to do or did you take a class or have a pattern? I'm just curious because I think they flow nicely and you did a wonderful job.

    After making quilts my own way (which was on the wonky side) I decided to take a class at a wonderful little shop close to my house. The instructor chose the blocks, and I decided on the fabrics and the layout of the quilt top. I learned so much from this class that I wish I would have taken one many years ago.

    Thanks, all, for looking at it and for all the nice comments. QC, my husband does not like to go fabric shopping with me because I take soooo long to "cogitate" on the variations. And thank you for the compliment. :lol:

    PS - thought I'd made a mistake at first and it wasn't your thread - where did the Duckies go? Over the hill and far away LOL! Love the cosmos though, just took me by surprise! :shock:

    Ducky, the quilt is gorgeous! And the colors remind me of Grand Canyon country. They are perfect. You did a great job and I know your son will love the quilt.

    I love the colors of this quilt! You did a really nice job with it.

    Is the tiny border black or dark brown?

    Well, K, the duckies all read the ugly fabrics threads and they blushed and waddled away as fast as they could. :lol: :lol: So, when they left me, I went to the garden and took different pictures of my flowers -- and I love my cosmos.

    Thank you all, again, for the nice comments. After I had the top all done, I wasn't sure if I had made the right choices in colors. And what didn't help was that my mother said she liked the quilt but didn't like the fabrics I chose. :roll: Your responses have given me encouragement. You all are great.

    Thank you. Kj05, it's funny you should ask about the inner border. My first thought was to make it dark brown, then decided on black. I think either one would have looked good.

    Ducky - there's a cartoon on British TV my kids watch where one of the little birds when she likes something says 'spicy!'. This applies to your quilt - those lovely warm colours are like a spice stall in Marrakech. I love it!
