Mari, I have to say that I did NOT enjoy that sashing! Took me FOREVER and trying to get the points right was a royal B___H! I'm glad I've only got the final border to go but...WAIT! I have to quilt it, too!! Argh! Honestly, I do love the design and it did make me step out of my comfort zone with all of the bias work but, I need a vacation now. LOL!

It's gorgeous, Rita! I love the colors, so different from mine. I love it.

Rita,  so pretty and so different........

It's beautiful Rita! I've got the last border ready to do but strong storms have been moving through today. I've been doing errands & chores instead. I'll post a pic here when I get the top finished. I plan on quilting it on my home machine. Maybe soon SITD SO it doesn't distract the eyes. We'll see.

I don't think anyone comes here anymore, but here is my finished top, plan to hand quilt this fall. ( yes I know I have one row of sashing in wrong spot, and will fix.)

Vilma, you will be very happy if you do join us in Gifty. It was my first to join, and it has been nothing but fun ever since.

And thanks to all of you for being in my live!!!

You crack me up, Vilma. And guess what? I SAW YOU! hehee.

It is a fun and wild group isn't it, Kathy?

I took my LL quilt to sis's today, she had a sit and sew, and she wanted to see my quilt. She loves it! So did her friends. That always makes me feel good. I have to quilt it now. This quilt doesn't want to be a UFO.

Vilma, your Christmas quilt is adorable. Might as well join the Gifty Galore group. You can always just 'lurk' in the wings. lol  The projects are quite varied, so there is usually something for everyone. And members are always posting other projects they work on.

Thanks Ladies,  I think I will visit some of you at the Gifty Galore and check it out.  I am not promising anything.  Just checking it out.  :)

That really IS a happy quilt, Vilma! I love it.

My sis calls it fancy cut.

Yippee, Mari, I am ready. Wait, first I need to get my LL quilt quilted, or it will end up with the two totes full of kits. I went through the two totes last night, I found a couple of projects just like Mari's. Almost finished, what was I thinking????

I slept late, and haven't showered, or even managed to get off the couch. I think I need to motivate myself and get hopppin'.
