    Here is the top I made for my daughter. It is big I did not have pattern we just made up the block and layout and then I added the border and piano style keys and it is not perfect but I am tickled that I actually finished it. Now I just need to find someone to quilt it and she likes stipple. I think I should have made the white border smaller but no way am I ripping anything on this again :oops: :oops: :oops:

    I really like your quilt. You really have a nice balance of colors and I think your white border is the perfect size. Your piano key border really sets it off well. Good job :thumbup:

    Bright and beautiful! Quilts aren't supposed to be perfect are they? I didn't think so!

    Did not know capital letters meant I was shouting....but then again I was thilled cause I did this whole top on my little brother machine and it is big ( I think that is why my husband bought me the new 6600 cause so many cuss words were coming form the sewing room....lol) Thanks for all the encouragement and kind words.

    I like the "made-up" pattern. It is very attractive.

    Wow! What an ambitious project for a first quilt. You did a great job and the colors are really fun. The borders are the right size to balance the size of the blocks. Have fun quilting it.

    Good job! I'd leave the border too. The way I look at it, you learn something with each quilt. :)
