    Here's the pieced top for my red & white Annie's Choice block quilt which I started a year ago. Once I sewed all my blocks together I realized I hated the way it looked. Out of frustration, I ripped it all back to the individual blocks and set them aside. After 2011 arrived I decided I had to finish all my WIPs (4) before moving on to new quilts. Annie's Choice was the WIP on the top of the pile. The blocks finish at 12-inch squares, sashing 3-inches. I have added sashing and cornerstones and now I love how it is coming together. Can't wait to finish it.

    It looks wonderful with the sashing and cornerstones. I think you made a good choice. I love that block, but I'd think it would get awfully busy looking with not break between the blocks. :-D

    Sometimes you just have to put a project aside, take a step back and come at it again at a later date. I'm so glad you are happy with your quilt!! It's lovely!!! :thumbup:

    Very classic! I love red and white. I am collecting red fabric and plan to make Annie's Choice blocks as well.

    The sashing and cornerstones make it outstanding. Just lovely.

    First off thanks to everyone for such kind words. I love how board members encourage each other. And to all who run into periods of total frustration (where you want to throw the whole thing out) as I did with this one: please set the work aside for a while (even as much as a year) and when you go back to it you will see possibilities that you missed the first time around.

    To kwendt: I cannot honestly say how I will quilt it.... I actually haven't begun to think about that part of it....

    To quilter rkc: I love your taste in fabric color and quilt blocks (though I could not have said that about a year ago...ha..ha!)

    Really nice, sometimes I forget about using a single block pattern to use to make an entire quilt. I think the sashing and cornerstones set it off nicely....

    The oldest one I've got is about 9 years old now. Each time I take it out I put it away again...sigh.... :-(
