    Spectacular!!!
    The m ix of the fabrics gives it such a nice warm and cozy look!
    What size will it finish at? From the drape on the ironing board, I'm thinking a Lap Quilt?

    And I've just got to ask ... what's prancing around in the background? horses? a quilt? or?

    Thanks ladies... I will have to look for the final measurements. It is definitely big enough for a twin bed.
    Have an awesome day!

    What a great looking quilt, Jenniky! Love the colors. And I'm so jealous of your weekend plans...I'd give anything to spend a day with my daughter. Have a great time!

    I've got progress to show, too. It's tack fused to parchment paper so I can fuse it to the stripes all at once. Not too happy with the crooked pinkie, but I'm hoping to fix it. Otherwise, Canada is destined to have a touch of arthritis...hardly appropriate for such a young country. *giggle*



    The stripes will be red and white solids, and the stars/leaves are a small white vine TOT.

    Looking terrific, Ghostie! .... what size are you working towards?

    If one of the pinkies are crooked, I can't see it!

    Whew! Thanks all. Good to hear you don't notice the 'crook' cuz I can't seem to get it unstuck to fix. I need to develop a lighter hand with the 'tack' fusing.

    QuiltE, the piece will finish out at 28"x28". The heart is just shy of 20" wide.

    Jenniky - great progress, getting closer to the finish every day...

    Ghostrider - I can't see it either. Anyway, there's no such thing as a mistake in quilts, it's a visual surprise.

    The finished size is 65 X 81 .. and the prancing horse in the background is a brown fabric with running horses I have hung on the wall from the ceiling that I pin squares to that Im working on. Right now it has my entry into the QB block contest pinned to it and a few other specials. The squares are much higher up on the wall after the contest I can give you a peek.
    Have an awesome day!

    I just got my issue of Fons and Porter's love of quilting and they have the neatest American Flag quilt I've ever seen for those that are looking for a patriotic project. They have a kit on their site. https://www.shopfonsandporter.com/pr...-kits-by-issue
    Check it out.

    Super job, Jenniky!

    Here's the progress on mine...overall and detail. It's all ready for quilting, but that'll have to wait for me to catch up on a few things with granite deadlines. (It amazes me how many shades of red my camera can come up with all by itself. )
