    Here's a top I just completed. It's been sitting for a while as I had a hard time finding a border fabric for it. Now I just need to quilt it up. It wasn't an easy pattern and my seam ripper came in handy :roll: Matching up all the leaves and flower seams wasn't easy. It's an intermediate and above pattern, and I can see why. I'm glad it's done!

    It's much bigger than I thought now that I see your foot for size reference. It came out awesome! I can only imagine how the seam ripper became your best friend. There must be 100-200 pieces in that top that need to be carefully matched.

    Great job! :D

    WOW! That's gorgeous! Great work...no matter what it took to get it to this point...IT WAS WORTH IT! That would certainly make a beautiful center for a Round Robin..if you think you'd like to grow it to bedsize... I'd be quite happy to have it on a wall myself...just thought I'd through that out there! Thanks for showing us this one!

    Fabulous! My bridesmaids carried daffodils -- 38 years ago come March 4th! (So I have a special love for them)

    Daffodils are my favorite flowers and your quilt certainly does them justice. It's gorgeous.

    It was a lot of work and thanks for the compliments. It's a paper piecing or foundation piecing pattern by Eileen Sullivan http://www.thedesignersworkshop.com/catalog.php?sec=5

    I'm almost done with my 2nd Iris one, since I gave the 1st one away as a gift. As soon as I finish quilting the daffodil one, I'm going to finish up the Iris. I'm in the same boat though. I'm having problems finding a border fabric that calls my name. I have the Birds of Paradise waiting to be started.

    If you're interested in trying one of these, so far the Iris one was easier (IMO) than the daffodil. There seem to be less pieces and larger pieces in the Iris pattern so I think it's a smidge less tricky.

    I spent today sandwiching it and am about 80% done marking the top to start the quilting. I'm trying to decide what thread to use. I really don't want to be changing top thread a million times, but I don't really care for the look of invisible thread either. So, I need to think on it.
