Judy, good to hear from you.

I enjoy watching her for "inspiration". All of these professional quilters make me feel self conscious too. But I guess that's why they are the pros and not me.

There's a wonderful quote from the Missouri Star quilting lady that I love "Better to be finished than Perfect."  I like it so much that I'm turning it into embroidery for my sewing room.

Enjoy our beautiful Ohio weather today.

Can't begrudge them their fun, Cathy

Don't begrudge them a thing.  I admire them and wish I had their energy and skills.  Guess the word is envy.

this makes 5 tops in the closet.  Time to start thinking of quilting them.  But deciding on borders isn't any fun. stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

I completely agree.  In scrappy colors.

I have finished redoing this quilt, binding was put on this weekend.  I ended up doing big stitch hand quilting in the blocks (first time experience), machine quilted straight lines in the sashing, the new backing is a stripe, the same colors as the original backing.  It was a much loved quilt, it's not anything special but I love how it turned out.
Will try to post an updated picture later when I can get on my computer.

I think there is so much going on that you do not need a fancy border. It turned out great. 

Waiting to get back to my quilting someday..............just got back to New Mexico for another round of working on the house. At this point I am just gonna slog thru till it is finished or we do not meet the planned deadline to list.

Sounds cool. Looking forward to the photos
