    Wow!!!! That is awesome. It must have taken you along time to make. But well worth it. I laughed when I saw your name Chigger Hollar, when I moved to Missouri I got introduced quite well to those little Missouri Wildlife critters...LOL

    Yah, well...I'm so sensitive to the vermin here I thought I'd never be able to live here. Four years later and I still love it here. I'm glad you like the quilt. I worked on it pretty steady...I'm obsessed when I get on a project. I do love being a 'topper' though; it lets those creative juices flow like nothing else! :)

    No, I just machine stitched at the outer edge of the flowers using a thread that blends in. I love to do handwork, but saving that for my embroidery projects. LOL

    The pattern is called Garden Party by Moda. Look in their catalog or online. :)

    I'll post that (someday) when I get the two additional borders on. The pattern didn't call for them, but too much work to not have it work on the bed! The next two weeks are so full I won't get to it till after that.
