    The wedding is near the end of April.... finally got most of the top done, just need to do the borders. So far I'm guessing there's about 20+ hours labor into it...not counting trying to find just the right colors! LOL Oh the torture....travelling to quilt shops....searching online....oh my! :wink:
    The picture doesn't show it, but there are 2 more rows at the bottom...we just weren't tall enough!
    Cross your fingers that we can actually get it all the way completed in time to wrap it up! :D

    That is wonderful. I'm sure looking at all the fabric on line and spending all that time in fabric stores was grueling. Tee Hee. But it was worth it.

    It's a beautiful thing -- and yes, the "torture" we all go through to find just the right fabrics is just awful :roll: :roll:

    Sheesh .... That quilt looks huge! It is very nice work getting it to this stage. I pray you are able to get it done in time. Have you planned out the quilting yet?

    Thanks everyone! :D
    Yes, I'm going to machine quilt it...my new little Janome will be getting a workout! lol
    It will be very simple quilting, probably a corner-to-corner diagonal grid with stitch-in-the-ditch around the blocks. We'll see how it goes. :wink:
    I can't believe how heavy it is already....and it's only a top!!!

    I wanted to do something a little different for this quilt. At first, toyed with the idea of doing Ocean Waves...until I did one sample block! Decided I might never finish that one, so switched to my old faithful - the single Irish Chain. Figured, if you can put a heart in the Ocean Waves, should be able to do it here too. The hard part was not having a place for a design wall...so I just kept my design print-out next to the machine & crossed off each row as I went, and labeled it with the row number. I wasn't actually positive that I got the heart right until that picture was taken!!! :lol: :D :D

    Going to do a triple border the same width & fabric as the 9-patches, with 9-patch cornerstones with the colors reversed (aqua corners/brown center). I think I'll be working on that tomorrow - National Quilting Day! :D

    THAT is gorgeous!!! Who is hiding behind it?? I could do that for my neice but she wants a queen size scrappy like I made my Mom for her 80th birthday.

    Don't wear that new machine out now, take your time. :wink:

    Hugs,
    Sharon
