I love the fabrics you have chosen and this looks wonderful. No will know it "was suppose to be" done differently as this way is lovely!
Without reading your description, I never would have noticed that you did it differently and I'm doing the same project! I do like the fabrics you've chosen - that pink is such a fun shot of color!
I think this is beautiful!
I love Central Park, by the way - I have a few of the prints in a quilt I'm making, and really love them.
I think it is a perfect use of the fabric!
Thanks everyone. I am excited about starting tomorrow the embroidery section of the white border.
I'm so excited about the embroidery too. That was my favorite part of Rachel's quilt!
And I am excited to see it!!!
This is gorgeous...truly beyond words. What patience!
True, thank you for your kind words.
Wow stunning truly just cannot describe how much I love this...what is so cool about seeing different people work with this class is how different each is and how beautiful each is as well! What is EEP?
Oh and so the pins do make a difference? I have seen and wondered
True - It's English paper piecing. Love how you did your borders. I need to get my butt in gear on my EPP. Hopefully this weekend at my quilt guild sew-in...
True EEP stands for English Paper Piecing (at least I learned that from the class!). Juicyapplecreations you are making us look bad with cranking this beauty out, LOL. It's turning out so pretty!! I'm curious about these fork pins. Can you post a pic of them? How'd you find out about them? After seeing your picture on Flickr I was so tempted to redo my checkerboard border. I really like how you organized the colors making it look like a mini border. Excellent idea!
Terryt1955 I posted two pictures for you of the fork pins. I found them wonderful in matching my seams on the 40 strips on the border. If you have any questions about them, let me know. You can buy them at Joann's.
This is beautiful - I love your hand work!
Thanks Juicyapplecreations . I will definitely check them out. After completing my checkerboard border and seeing how my white swuares totally stretched out of control I think I'm going to need to redo it. I also ended up with such a random mess that it looks like a bad LSD trip! Not that I would know. So I guess I'll be able to bite off your idea and make a more planned look IF I HAVE TIME. I am not liking these deadlines!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the embroidery!
Thanks, *Kristananne. I am in the process of hand quilting the last border and will be ready for the final reveal. I have loved this project.
