    Here is a quilt I made from Connecting Threads . I made this quilt once before for my Mother. I made it for myself, but will enter in the local quilt show. Quilted it on my short arm. Brother PQ1500S on a homemade frame. It's not the best quilting in the world, but I can say it's ALL mine! :P

    What she said!

    I'm curious also about that border -- it is great.

    If you are talking about the floral wavy strip, I just followed the floral pattern on both sides. The blue strip I just did some small loops. For the large border I used a template all around the quilt and filled in as I went.

    If you talking about the puffiness --- I used two layers of batting. One layer of Hobbs cotton batting and one layer of Hobbs wool batting. I saw it on one of the quilt shows and I thought it looked great a little puffy!

    Dinah, Is that wavy border appliqued on the lighter fabric? or does the fabric have that wavy strip in it already?
    Thanks!
