    Ok ladies and gents....
    I put a burgundy sashing around it and I think that was a GREAT idea!
    Thanks all who suggested it!

    What do you think?

    Monique seems to like it, so I guess that's what counts, right? :)

    I really do think the sashing was the answer, you agree?
    I'm working on getting 3 more blocks done. Trying to NOT duplicate them, so it's going a bit slow.
    But....back to the room I go!

    That is perfect, Terri. So far. Now, all you need is for each precious Sue to have her own mini. Just draw one out on some appropriate colored fabric, cut it out, draw on features, and sew that baby onto each square. I can't wait to see the results! :wink: :lol: :wink: :lol: :wink: :lol: :wink:

    I thought of maybe putting a couple little kitties on it, but not sure WHAT animals the girls like. They don't have any pets of their own, so I decided against it.

    You know what would be better??
    If I had Rosie so I could make sure it looked right :wink: :wink: ;) ;)

    I wish we could all meet somewhere and say hello in person, and then pick each others brains, I think we are good as individuals, but together watch out world!

    The burgundy really helps pull your eye inside your window. Great choice!

    I love Sunbonnet Sue.

    That little girl of mine is into EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING!
    She loves to pull the pins out when I'm trying to put them IN a quilt. Naughty girl! But, I love her.....

    Ok, here you go.
    Now, I just have to finish off the burgandy around it and find something for the border.
    The pix aren't all that great, but what do you think?

    Monique checking it out again
