    Well, I got one of my six tops quilted and bound. Not sure I like it though. Good thing it will just be kept in my sewing room.

    It looks good from here. Put it away for a while then look at it. Sometimes after so much work we get tired of looking at a quilt :D

    Sometimes, I think we feel let down when something is finished! It is the anticipation rush we crave!
    Your quilt is lovely, enjoy it! Relax and be glad! :lol:

    I've always wondered what to do with those squares with witty sayings - I've seen them at quilt shows - and you've found a wonderful use for them. Your quilt is imaginative, and I love the colors.

    Hey .... this quilt is really nice! I love the colors too, like so many before me said. I wish I could read the quilter's quips. Fuzzy eyes this morning. :shock:

    The quips are:
    1 - A messy house is the sign of a happy quilter.
    2 - A fat quarter has fewer calories than a hot fudge sundae.
    3 - She who dies with the most fabric wins.
    4 - No outfit is complete without a few threads.
    5 - When I learned how to quilt I forgot how to cook.
    6 - Will quilt for food.
    7 - I'm a quilter and my house is in pieces.
    8 - Blessed are the children of quilters for they shall inherit the quilts.

    :D Number four made me laugh out loud ... so true. And the trail of threads though the house is like rose petals to a quilter, right?

    I posted later in the thread because I stopped at SewJoyce's remark to comment on both the quilt and what she said. I love the quilt and thanks for taking the time to post the sayings I Love them all.

    Like everyone else, I LIKE IT! I look at those quips at every quilt show, chuckle, and then I don't buy them, because I can't figure out how to use them. Now, thanks to you, we ALL know how to use them. They left one out, 'If you DON'T like it, too bad! If you DO like it, it's mine!' considering one of our recent threads.
