Reminisce is now finished

This is my 12th finish for this yr. Seeing this top is scrappy I decided to use the 4" cw fabric squares I've been collecting for awhile for the backing so it's a real scrappy quilt.

Reminisce is a top

Just finished this quilt top today thinking for me it's too scrappy, it is 60" square and thinking I might add a border like a tone on tone no pattern to frame it in and make it abit bigger, any suggestions?

SITP update

Just finished quilting & trimming Shakespeare in the Park and I used the baptist fan panto, and will be using it again I really like how it looks, the binding is ready to go will attach it tomorrow and will be my first finish of 2009. I have another top to quilt and need to piece some fabric for the backing and think I'll piece some batting and use up all those strips left over from other quilts. Off to shovel more snow got about 8inches over night and it's been snowing all day.
