Hello ladies. I'm back. I've been away visiting my grands in Indiana. We scooted out of Florida ahead of Hurricane Michael.

Teen, my vote for binding would be the same fabric as the scallop border. Great job on the border. It looks awesome.

Will have to decide on what my next project will be.

Welcome home, Judith. Hope you enjoyed the grands. Christmas right around the corner so probably lots of projects to chose from. When Santa done, I'm going to do a Christmas quilt for my neighbor. Hope to whip that out quickly. Also, another QOV....all cut and ready to go. Need to do a Snail Trail quilt for my aunt, too. (That was one of the SBS blocks I wanted to do a whole quilt using) Gracious....so little time..

Teen - love your Santa quilt. I've got the same scallop ruler but have not used it for a border yet.

My thoughts on binding- I love the way it looks unbound, so I 'd lean towards the same color as the border, either the same fabric or a solid green that matches. I think gold would bring another element in that isn't much there already in the blocks (unless it just does not show in the picture) They have a lot of dark cream, which isn't quite the same as the gold in the border. Gold would look great with the border fabric, but I think it would make the border look less tied to the center. And I think cream would dilute the bold look of the dark green frame, and I like that bold frame look.

However, colors on monitors can be very deceiving, so I might think something differently if I saw it in person.

Here is a picture of the fabric I'll be using for my Delilah quilt. They are mostly KF, but not all. About half the FQs, the layer cake and jelly roll, along with the pattern are from my prize for turning in the first Row by Row quilt to my LQS. Since the owner didn't have the prize ready yet, she put it together specifically for me! The LQS has a JK sewing group that meets every month, so the owner is excited about me making this quilt.

I've been collecting KF fabric for a while, had more than I though! The folded pieces in the upper right are 1-2 yard cuts. I think it's going to be really fun picking out fabric for each block.

As I have more JK patterns I'm planning ahead.
Today I was browsing the internet and came across an ad where a lady was selling Fossil Fern FQs, $ 2.90 each. I thought, oh well why not and went for it. I purchased 26 FQs, all different colors.
Tonight I visited a Dutch online quiltshop where they sell exactly the same fabric, $ 20/yard.......whaaaaaa
So now I'm happy with my purchase!!
Can't wait to get them, pet them, admire them and keep them as they are
