I have waited 1 1/2 YEARS to use this----


I have waited for a year and a half to use one piece of fabric that I got just for a border on a quilt and FINALLY this morning I was able to sew it on and here she is in all her 'GLORY':
This is the 2008 Quilt Club block of the month from my local quilt shop--we were all given the same fabrics and it was our choice whether to use them or add some of our own--well, for those of you who don't know me well yet--I will let you in on a little secret about "me"--I always have to do something "different" than the rest of crowd--( You know if the crowd is going to the left--I end up going to the right--and if everyone is into brown's I have to be into pinks???????) any way I did not care for the border that our leader had used for her border--so I looked around and fell in love with this one--it kinda reminds me of apple blooms---I did use some of the roses fabrics in the quilt and I fussy cut them for the center of a couple blocks--also there is a little black dot in the border fabric so I decided to add some black here and there. Here's the first picture I took after I got it finished today:
My sister is holding it up in front of the window--doesn't it look like a stained glass quilt????

And she held up the paper pieced one so I could show you a better picture of the colors:
And here is the block for August for quilt club that we got today--I had to get it done after I got home--cause I said come the 1st--it's all just Christmas for a month--which will really be hard with all the new bom's coming in for August--but a girl's gotta do--what a girl's gotta do!!!
And now here is some other quilter's show and tell's for todays quilt club meeting:
And the gal that made this quilt--turned the leftover's into this one:
Nice Job---
Now here is a red,white,blue one!!!
And see I am not the only one who is thinking and working on Christmas??????
