    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!

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

    Congratulations on your fabulous finish! And the back - just beautiful! Love the way you carried over the pattern. I love the idea of hanging it for a bit to admire all of your hard work. Seems a bit more appropriate than the way my ORL is hidden out-of-daily-view in the back bedroom.

    Congratulations to both...AuntJo and missgigglewings.

    AuntJo, I really like your backing and applaud you for putting a nice touch to your quilt.
    missgigglewings, I’m sure it feels great to have completed your first BH mystery...they are quite a challenge.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Very pretty, missgigglewings! I remember considering blue sashing myself at one point, so it is nice to see a finished one in blue.

    Beautiful finish miss gigglewings!! Your colors just pop! Congratulations on your 1st BH finish. I have 2 started, yet to finish either. My ORL is just waiting for a border. Great job on yours.

    It's only about a month and a half until Bonnie announces the new mystery! Is anyone else thinking about it? I'm wondering if it will be based on her trip to China, which was late in 2017.

    I'm still on the fence if I'll join in this up coming mystery quilt. The last one really drained me out, lol! If I do jump on the wagon I'll only do a half size to start with. It's true... My sofa does need a new quilt!
