    my take on arkansas :)

    a while back i got the pattern from #1Piecemaker on her Journey to Arkansas quilt. i was at my lqs for a table runner class a week ago and saw a homemade roll i just had to have! well a week into it this is what i have so far. i have far far to go but the more i look at this the more i love it. the colors, the feel, i think it's warm and rich. i would like to enter this along with my b,w,&r in the show in september. wanted to share and get some input from you guys on maybe quilting suggestions, border suggestions, etc. i need to buy another roll to finish the blocks so i thought that would give me the binding as well. just need border(s). im pretty new at this so any help would be greatly appreciated! thank you!

    It's beautiful! Those colors are just perfect, together!!! It makes me think of Autumn, in the country.

    It's beautiful! I can see why you had to have that fabric. You're doing a great job. Waiting to see the finished quilt.

    Love it! i would add a narrow border of one of the reds, then a wide one of the white/cream fabric and applique some leaves on it.

    Of course you know what I think...... It's super!!!! You already know how I quilted mine. Are you going to do it by hand or by machine? That will make a big difference in the quilting.
