    Sunrise Over the Pines. Done! (Well--on the design wall anyway.)

    This is for my husband to hang over his desk.
    I have been working on this for awhile. I made many changes along the way, especially with the sunrise. Today I kept changing how the top row of trees blends in with the sun...and I'm still wondering if it should be yellow all the way across...but I'll look at it again tomorrow and decide.

    Now comes the task of taking it down to sew together. Ugh. lol I'll have to add a small border on the sunrise to match the tree width. THEN it goes to feline fanatic for quilting! I cannot wait to see what she does with it!

    I sliced the tip of a finger off with my rotary blade today--so that slowed me down some, darn it. I'll sure be more careful now!

    Oh--this is a combination of at least three patterns, so I can't tell anyone where to get it.

    that's fantastic. keeping blocks in the right order for sewing has always been my downfall Eleanor Burns always made it look so easy.

    If I were you I wouldn't change the yellow along the bottom of the sunset. I like it very much the way it is.

    What a beautiful quilt!

    Nope! But I had to wipe my skin off the rotary blade. Eww. I was trimming the red/blue blocks anyway. LOL

    Wow! It reminds me of a friend's Christmas tree farm. I'm really glad you didn't have to worry about getting stains out.

    This is really nice. You did a beautiful job of shading the colors of the sky.

    The light on in the cabin gives it a very human element! It makes you think someone is inside the cabin. I think your husband will really like it over his desk!

    That is gorgeous! I sliced the side of my left index finger off a month ago, but it has healed nicely and didn't stop me but for a day or two! Quilt on!!!
    Retired teacher, loving it.
