    Just finished this and couldn't wait to show you all, I am so pleased with it, I do make a rod for my own back by just winging it, not following any pattern - just working out what to do next when I get there...well last night I put all four borders on,cleared a big space in the little sitting room downstairs - spread it all out (it's in two pieces diagonally, as I will quilt it by machine and it would be too big as a whole).

    Well.......OMG DUHHHHH :shock: :cry: !!

    I completely forgot that the join isn't dead centre but off set soooooo, the border from one side actually bridges over the other, my problem??? I had cut all the excess off thinking as I did so :roll: why is this border soooo long :?

    Well today I did some rip rip rippping, and more cut cut cutting, then sew sew sewing AGAIN and FINALLY I get to show you guys and gals what all the fuss was about :lol:

    Next process....how the heck am I gonna quilt it??????? suggestions please :D

    Wow, Izy - very nice! That's a lot of little pieces sewn together! Machine quilting is my weakness, so I would have no idea how to suggest to quilt it. Great job.

    Oooh, it's gorgeous Izzy!!! Hmm, well, for me, the quickest and easiest way to quilt it would be in straight lines, along the edges of all the sashings and inner sashings, but just do it right from one edge of the quilt straight through :)

    Lol.I banished Sasha as she would have run all over it while I was trying to get a picture, so included my 'substitute' Sasha, John bought it for me when we first came over to Spain as we left Sasha with my Mum while we got the villa and grounds in order and he knew I would miss her like mad!! Sasha 2 yaps and walks, but no pee pee's or poo poo's :lol:

    Oh Iz you are such a kick! I thought I was the only one who would get "all ready to be done" then discover I had made a big boo boo!!

    Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous! so bright and cheery!

    I think you could do about anything in the quilting part and it would still be delightful.
