    You've seen this before--but I thought you'd want to see how the quilting is coming. This is for my niece who just bought a house with her fiance. They're getting married in Sept, and a ragged flannel will be the gift for that event.

    The tricky part is the darn binding! It's pinned in the back in the photos. Matching the sky to sky and grass to grass is a pain. But, I did it--see:

    :wink:
    Edited to add fixed tree issue.... :roll: I like that better. :D

    Everytime I post photos I get a new persepctive on the projects. I see what I don't like. That one tree really stands out-looks like a B-l-o-c-k. :? Well--nothing can be done now--it's well rooted. :lol:

    Karla, I didnt even notice it, so had to go back and look. But ok I see what you are saying now, I think if you just add a little bit of quilting around it, it will be just fine. (I know, more work). That would be for your peace of mind, cause like I said I didnt even notice until you said something!!!

    And look at Jazz in the door!
    I didn't notice the block either until you mentioned it.
    Had to go and look.
    You did do a great job!!

    I think the quilting will do it. Maybe that is your family tree... She is going to love it.

    To answer the "why Jazz?" question--I'd have to say I thought my niece would appreciate it a lot--and he looks so danged handsome in there. :wink:
