    I have just about finished my quilt to enter in my guilds quilt show in Feb. I thought I would try posting a picture of it. I have never done this before so hope it works for me. The name of the quilt is "Bouquets For a New Day" and the original pattern is by Sue Garman. I changed the borders on mine. She recommended a sawtooth border but I did not want to do that one. Hope you like it.

    Like it?? No, I love it. Beautiful job. I actually like the plain border, not a fan of Prairie Points. Good luck in the quilt show.

    The applique is lovely.

    I like to do applique but I would never have the patience to do that much. How long did it take to do the whole thing?
