I think of Tool Time with the neighbor just poking the upper part of his face over the top of the fence

Ha, I remember him!  Now I walk around with a quilt in front of my face to hide the big skin cancer scar.  LOL  Just kidding - in just four weeks I can see that it's going to heal very nicely.

Off to vote...

MNnancy:

So many people have already posted to the "media" section of the MQ7 Group that I think those quilt tops should be eligible for voting on, too.  Okay?

I think it was simpler to just post photos in media. In any case, as usual, it's not an easy task choosing just one favourite.

I have to admit, at first I was a bit disappointed with how simple the pattern was becoming.  Specially since I decided to finally use one of my favorite fabrics, just saving it for that special project.  But now that I am done, I think this was the perfect project for that fabric.   It makes a great border, that is large enough to really enjoy the fabric and all the other fabrics were chosen to match it.  Having a variety of lights and darks as Nana suggested.   And I only had to buy 1/3 yard of fabric, with all the rest coming from my stash.  

Thanks Nana, for a great pattern.  I will be using it, along with some of the beautiful variations, in future quilts.

You know, I remember that show and I'm not that old (I'm only 29!).  I forgot to show you guys what I made as a side project.  Remember when I had to square my blocks so that I could cut them at an angle to change the look?  Well, I couldn't just throw out the 1/2" wide strips could I?  NO!!  I decided to make my daughter a few pot holders for her kitchen she will be getting for Christmas.  They make small 5" potholders... just perfectly sized for a mini kitchen, right ;)  Anywho, here is the picture of them...

I got the reference right away too! LOL

MN Nancy,  Don't fret over the scar too much.  In January I had a good sized skin cancer removed from the area around my left eye and temple.  I thought it would be red, ugly, and obvious forever.  My granddaughter mentioned over the weekend she can hardly remember where "that big ugly thing" was.  When I looked in the mirror, hard, I could barely see it.  By summer you will not even notice it.

First of all, for future reference, YES, you have my permission to throw out 1/2 inch strips!  After a quarter inch seam allowance on either side, that leaves no fabric!  After saying that, I think your mini pot-holders are very cool.  I'm impressed by the patience you must have had to do those!

I was able to finish my top, thrilled over the finished look. Thanks to Nana and all of you who kept me from scrapping this project. I too was a bit leery abut the pattern. Mrs.O would be proud at the way her fabrics came together. will post in media as well.

oh and in reference to MNnancy I thought about 'Tool Time' the very first time I saw your avatar. LOL
