    OK, it finally came through! Beautiful quilt and one you will cherish!

    But finally I can call it DONE and move on to something smaller, easier, and a lot more fun. So why am I even glancing at the Dear Jane book??!

    Wow! It's gorgeous, and worth every minute you put into it.

    Put the Dear Jane book down. Walk away, Don't look back. Pick a nice simple table runner or something you could do with your eyes closed.


    By the way, I really think you should keep the name "Stupid Sylvia" for this quilt!

    That is such a complex quilt! No wonder you need a 'simply fun' quilt to work on now. Your work is wonderful and this quilt was worth finishing :thumbup: Thanks for shareing.

    'Cause you're a masochist? ;-) ;-) ;-)

    The quilt is fabulous, and clearly was a lot of work. I'm a huge fan of simple, solid, wide borders - it really makes teh viewer focus in on the blocks and frames them beautifully.

    What's the finished size of the blocks?
    The blocks finish at 6 inches. My borders are really a dark batik, though they show as black. It is meant to have multiple borders, but I decided to skip that part, LOL.
    I love your quilt. You did great! Pretty colors in the border.
