    Well at last this one has got finished (oops that word :oops:) it long overdue, what was that I said Melissa 2 weeks hah and pigs might fly. Not by any means perfect but it was my first quilt and I did lots in between and I did learn from this one.

    This is for my Daugher and hubby for their housewarming present when they come to live in Spain next March its a complete surprise.

    Thank you to everyone who helped me choose that border colour I think you did a great job on that.

    Hi Izy, Yes it did get me motivated to get it finished. I have finished 2 quilts in 2 weeks.

    I nearly gave the game away and I just stopped myself in time. She was asking what I was sewing and I nearly blurted it out.

    NOW what to do next I ask myself.

    Thanks everyone, it was about time. That 2 weeks did stretch a bit didnīt it Melissa.

    Well about the reproduction am having second thoughts as to that one, I have gradually gone off it. Think its the fabrics, its not quite what I really would have chosen, I tried to make it as near the repro as possible and I think thats whats done it.

    Elle, it turned out to be fantastic!!!! I love your border ..well, the whole thing. Sometime I'm going to make that one. I plan to clear out some other stuff first. What happened to your hoopla quilt plan? Is that the reproduction one you are talking about?? I love that one too!

    And..oh yea...the RR centers will start making the rounds in a couple of weeks too!

    Elle - that is one awesome quilt! You did such a super job of it.

    I can hardly believe you would choose to do such an intricate quilt for your first one. I am still doing plain old squares whenever possible as I am the most comfortable with them.
