    I've finally finished piecing the top of my quilt, after falling in and out of love with it.

    This quilt so far has caused me nothing but grief, i've run out of fabric twice....... AGHH but i'm suprised how good it looks.

    Now onto quilting it !!! I think large sunflower shapes to quilt it.

    Hope you all like it I'm sure I will grow to love it again.

    Very pretty-so bright and cheerful. Thanks for sharing your picture-it's cloudy and gloomy this morning here so it was nice to see all those happy colors. By the way, who's that peeking around the corner of the quilt? Too cute-my dog, Patches, always gets in pictures, invited or not.

    I am sure you wil love it again. I recently went though something simular on the board myself.

    The little dog that made me laugh is the one in the background with it;s tal end sticking up. It looks like it's whole body is under the ground with it's tail in the air. LOL!

    The colors are vibrant and I am sure it is going to be one of your favorites once you love it again.

    This is so pretty! Very pretty fabrics and I love the layout.

    I know you will love it again. I run into that. It's like you see the quilt so much that you get tired of it. Then I put it away for a while and I love it again when I take it back out.

    Whatever it was supposed to look like,
    you sure did a good job, anyway! :D

    It's so bright and cheery...I'm sure you'll love it when the frustrating memories fade a bit. You did a great job on it, and quilting with sunflowers sounds perfect!

    Great job! I know just what you mean about falling in love with a quilt and then falling out of love. Some quilts seem to sort of help you along, and with others it's a fight all the way! I'll bet once you get it quilted you'll love it all over again!
