    My current WIP

    I'm working on a quilt for my sister. It is her birthday present from our mom and me. (Mom bought all of the fabric, I'm sewing it together.) Although, it is turning into a Christmas present as well. My sister bought the pattern and as I started working on it, I decided that I really liked the pattern! As I continued to work on it, I have started to feel otherwise. It was so hard to lay out the quilt, and when I thought I had it perfect I still ended up messing it up...I will be glad when this one is done! Just need to add the border (white, her choice) and then figure out how I'm going to quilt and bind it!

    I like your colors and pattern and can't see anywhere that it doesn't look great. Good Job!

    It looks fine to me. Good job all around. No ideas for the quilting, but I'm sure you will make it beautiful.

    That is awesome! I really like that pattern but can see that looking at it and making it are two totally separate viewpoints! You have done a great job and your sister is going to love it!

    I can't actually quilt, so it will probably just SID. I was planning on binding it in the brown, but if it has a white boarder, that might look a little harsh.

    Thanks!! Your comment made my day!
    I am by far not experienced enough to adopt anybody. I'm self taught and make it all up as I go!
    Being a college student I wish I had more time to quilt so I could keep learning.

    It is beautiful. The brown may work - audition it for us - ok admitting I like to see works in progress. I was just thinking that the tut from charismah using 2 fabrics for binding would work beautifully. That way the second color can be one of the colors in the quilt, it can be the very tiny narrow part of the binding then the brown.

    I responded to your other post under Main, then came here to look at the quilt photo. It is absolutely gorgeous. I love the colors and the pattern. However, I can easily see how that pattern would test my patience to no end! You seemed (in the other post) to be so concerned about the white border, and I can see why. What about just adding a small, maybe 2", border in the white, then another wider border of one of the quilt's colors. That way you would all be pleased with it. That being said, there is no way you could make this quilt anything but beautiful! I love it! You are doing a wonderful job - Be proud of yourself!

    KerryK - I was thinking about doing a smaller border in white with another thicker border. Then the white will highlight/frame the quilt. I just don't have fabric for the border and don't know if I will be able to find something I'm pleased with.

    Thanks for all of your kind words and encouragement! I've tried really hard on this quilt and I hope it shows. I cannot wait to give it to my sister! I know she is going to love it no matter what.

    OMG the pattern reminds me of a filmstrip. My best friend's son is a film maker and I wanted to make him a quilt. This design is perfect!

    The pattern is called Slide Show by Atkinson Designs.

    I know it can be difficult to lay out blocks and get colors and patterns distributed evenly, but you did a great job! I love it. I thought it looked like Terry's pattern.

    I like this idea. Go ahead & go to Joanns & take a piece of fabric that is in the quilt so that you can feel the fabrics to see if they are the same. Sometimes I find something I like when I go back!! You might try Walmart also. Your quilt is lovely!!

    It looks really nice and would make a great quilt for showing off different fabrics, which I have been looking for, for some Asian fabrics I have been hoarding.
