    Oh Paula, I don't mind. Your computer softwear enhances the colors beautifully. I love nine patches also. I know they are a simple block, but, I love the pattern. And, thank you. I am working on a disappearing nine patch(my first time) baby quilt for my boss. Her grandson was born 20 days after Baby B. (my grandson, my mom keeps forgetting his name. So she calls him Baby B. When she had her heart surgery there were complications and it affected her short term memory. She will eventually remember his name is Brantley. Besides, Baby B is a cute nickname for now.)

    Baby B is a cute nickname - until he grows up. LOL It was funny (to me) the first time I heard my hubby's grandma call him Ricky.

    I received Yaya's center from Judith yesterday. It is so very pretty in person. It will have to stay in the package for now as I have to finish this quilt for my mom for Christmas. I put the green border on this morning and will be quilting it this afternoon. Wish me luck as this is a larger one and I quilt on my small but wonderful Symphony by BabyLock.

    Oh Paula, your quilt for your Mother is beautiful. I absolutely love it! I wish I knew how to do those blocks you have in the center. Any chance for a tutorial? They really make this quilt!!!

    Thanks Linda. Mom loves butterflies and when I saw that fabric I knew I had to do a quilt for her with it.

    If you are talking about the "flowers" they are appliqued. (This quilter can't do curved seams). I got the idea from a pattern I saw in Quilt magazine. I had thought about doing butterflies in those squares but the pink & green fabrics screamed out to be made into flowers.

    I will see if I can create a tutorial about how I made them - it was rather easy.

    I can never load a picture on here sorry.. it keeps saying upload file failed. So I guess Tam moo will have to post a picture of it when she gets it. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, could someone give me step by step instructions for posting a picture, if so I'll try again. Sorry!
    Happy Quilting,

    Gena, the picture you are trying to load may be too large. Do you know how to "compress" pictures on you computer?

    Paula, I love your mother's quilt. The butterfly fabric is a beautiful print. Can't wait to see what you decide on the borders.

    Gena, I've been having a problem uploading photos too lately. I don't think it all has to do with the photo size. I think the board may be having some glitches. Sometimes you just have to retry to upload. Can't wait to see what you added onto your round. This is so much fun seeing what everyone is doing.

    Gena, I love it. I love the clean simple lines and that you brought the turquoise back into this round. It's awesome.

    Now please, take a breath. You have lots of time before the next one is due. Enjoy christmas with your family.

    Oooh Gena - I really like it.
    I agree with Judith about it bringing the calming turquoise back in. I also think it sets the stage very well for the next round.

    You all are so amazing. That is the perfect thing to add and even tho it's simple, it's striking and as was said, lays the perfect platform for the next round.
    I don't know if I will ever be ready to join one of these RRs, but I surely am enjoying watching!!!

    dragonfly nana: I love what you've done with my center!!! Very pretty!

    I've been very busy finishing some UFO's-I finished my mom's KING size coverlet. Here I was trying to make it lighter weight as my mom didn't like how "heavy" her other quilt was (it had "warm & natural" batting and a lot of quilting which did weigh it down!). I put flannel on the back and just did enough quilting to hold it together. But, it seems it is still heavy! (hoping it works for her once on the bed. I think it is heavy because of all the thread used to piece all the
    blocks and using flannel on the back; plus, I think having the very long 25" drop makes it heavy.

    yaya, I loveeeeee your mother's quilt and the borders you added to give that drop. Those fabrics are so pretty and add the size without detracting from the lovely sampler top. Great job!!!

    Yaya those are gorgeous!
    and just to be clear - I was only posting the side-by-sides for yours. Judith was the one who added the 9 patches that made it look so nice.
