    Well here it is! Thanks to Karla, this one has a wonderful name. Sherbet Surprise. (I just love raspberry sherbet). This was an Agatha and Sherlock mystery quilt from Homespun Hearth, so I really didn't know what it was going to look like until almost all the parts were assembled. I was a little concerned when I realized it involved stars as I never can get the points to come out the way I would like, but it really turned out nicely. (I think I cut off at least 50% of the points - but heah, that means 50% are ok too :wink: ) Colors aren't quite right, but good enough for you to get the idea.

    In the end, I didn't like the fabric they included for the final border so I purchased different. I wanted it a little larger, so I added the 1 inch peachy border and made the last one 6 inch instead of 5.

    I am excited about this as it is the largest top I have ever pieced. Now I need to decide how to quilt it. I will be machine quilting it and I haven't done much other that some echo, stitch in the ditch and a little FMQ any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Lovely, lovely, lovely! My daughter wants a purple quilt and I being color challenged didn't think I could pull it off. I'm going to steal your color choices if you don't mind. :thumbup:

    I am glad it would work for your daughter! I too am color challenged, which is why I went for the kit...course then I decided to change it up a little...took me, DH, and 3 ladies at the LQS to come up with the thin border and the final purple one. But it works!
    Good luck with your quilt. Don't forget to post pics.

    Oh how gorgeous!!! Perfect name as well. Those colors are definitely just like sherbet! I don't know what the original border fabric was, but that one that you picked is perfect. I love that it's a tad darker shade of purple. Really finishes off the design. The narrow peach border is perfect too. Heck, it's all perfect! Great job!
