    Oh I love those little panels...I saved a link to those pics long time ago and had plans to make them, but never have. It's so nice to see them in a quilt.

    This is a lovely piece of art.

    Are you going to back it with muslin? Or zig zag the open seams?
    I've done both for doll quilts and they lasted a long time.

    I haven't decided what to do with it yet.
    I'm gona add more of the pokie dot material to the sides and end so it hangs down like a bedspread .
    But I'm not sure what to use cause doing this is still so new to me '
    Any advice I could get from everyone ???
    I have alot of time in this so I want it to look good and last. :?:

    Thanks for all the compliments !!! :thumbup:
