They are all pretty so obviously I can't go wrong with whatever I do. Just need to pick an option and go for it.

I don't think I did that one Golo.

I emailed Bizkitea, Karin, who participated in this swap. She is doing well and says hi to everyone.  She hasn't sewn in a while. She has lots of different hobby interests and just not time for all of them. Just glad she was doing okay.

Golo I wonder what design the quilter will do on the autograph quilt, cant wait to see, Id like to get mine on the move too, the top is done but got no further yet, perhaps I could fleece back it like I did Lauras

Got the binding done on my trees. Sorry about the pics. It was very windy so hard to get a really good one. Next time I'll have Cassie frame it a bit closer too, if she can. It was quilted with holly leaves and berries in a dark green thread. I embellished the trees with some sparkly tinsel type braid. I have no idea if it will hold up with washing, but since it will only be out one month a year, I don't anticipate washing it much. If it doesn't hold up, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. coolsmiley

Oh it looks fantastic and I love the metallic tree trims, hope it stands up to the odd wash, that stuff is often tougher than expected. Just love the shade of green you have used on the border, what a yummy colour. so glad we all did this quilt, I'd been wanting one for years

Probably in a corn dog box! lmao But I can't narrow it down more than that. lmao lmao

Thanks everyone. I do like it and I labeled it and everything! I wrote everyones' name on their block and just kept my label simple.

Helen, the border has metallic gold holly leaves and berries so it goes really well with the metallic trim and the quilting design.
