    Sewbizgirl it's beautiful, I love your border. Christine yours is beautiful as well. How did you get the backing on so straight? And it goes without saying that everyone that posted pics did a wonderful job. I have mine done, but posting pics is just beyond my abilities. Thanks everyone for sharing.

    Thank you all for the kind words.. I had so much fabric left that I decided to piece the back with strips and then learned on a YouTube video showing how to pin a large quilt on a smaller table (vs on the floor) while making sure the layers are all centered and aligned using skewers taped to the table top. I also use a seam guide on my sewing bed with hopes to keep seam allowances somewhat straight. Even still - I was off a wee bit but that's a 'design choice' according to Angela Walters, right?

    Thanks again for the nice feedback - I think we've all created our own beautiful versions of ORL and it's just so fun to see everyone's finished work! Hope we have more finishes to admire soon!

    Sorry I couldn't get the You Tube link to work..

    Christine, your backing is a wonderful use of fabric to create a "fabric." It can stand by itself as a top.
