              Very nice ! Isn't it more fun to stitch when not under pressure?

                That's so pretty! The colors are great and I love the pieced border. Well done.

                  Totally jealous that you are working/finishing Christmas - but love the colors and the way you used the turnovers!

                    Nice. I like the border the best. Are the large blocks quilted with designs or stippled (?)? I can't tell from the pic.

                      My hubby is saying that I should make quilts for Xmas. First he says we're cutting back, then he says I should make quilts. . . . does he think the fabric comes from the sky? The batting? Maybe I should start using his CC. LOL!

                        Let's see if I can answer all of the questions in one post.

                        No, the other quilt is a bit different (larger). I used 9 fat quarters and yardage for the borders, backing and binding. It's all done is wild tie-dyed colors for my 15 year old step-daughter.

                        No, the large squares are not quilted at all. I just stitched around each fat quarter and the two borders.

                        Did I forget anything? Thanks for all of the wonderful comments. I really appreciate it.
