    I know you will all be shocked that I finally finished this quilt that I had so much trouble with. Believe it or not...I already miss working on it :roll:

    I decided to leave the quilting alone (like you all suggested). I think I love the quilt...to bad...SIL probably will not get it, that is unless she bribes me with chocolate...lots of chocolate!!

    There isn't enough chocolate in the world to lure that quilt away......You have set the bar high! It is beautiful and I just hope that some day, I will have the skills to attempt something similiar.

    IT'S A KEEPER!
