Judy T-Bellingham:
Kris, I like the way you finished off the June Scrappy and the backing is terrific.

Judy:
Kris--like your quilting--especially the loops just inside the outer border.  Looks great!

Thanks Judy x 2.

This turned out so big it took 2 people to hold it up. Thanks Nana for the scrappy quilt top.

It looks great Bonita. I like your inner border. Nicely done.

Thanks Jean.  I waffled with the choice of background fabrics and actually cut a tan batik for all the background pieces.  They are patiently waiting to be made into the next version of this fun scrappy.

Just love using the batiks that I have collected.  Felt good to finally cut into them and see what they could do. 

I did learn that 8 scraps of the same fabric was probably the most I would want in a project this size.  I used 16 of some of them and ended up with two blocks coming up adjoining with the same corner.

Not a major deal but took some of the scrappy away. 

Anyway, for me, I think using more fabrics for the next one will give a more scrappy result and that will not be bad.

Susie:

Darlene--Love it!  The dots are great!

 

 

Thanks Susie.  The picture doesn't really show it but the background fabric was multi colored dots as well.

Just love polka dots and there are so many beautiful batiks with polka dot themes.  At least there seem to be in my stash.

Bonita, great borders.  I love your inner border with the pieced effect. 

And as you could see from mine, I am partial to the dark with a dotted pattern.

This was a good tie in of all the colors from your scraps.

Nice choices.  WTG

okay everyone I am calling this top done. I will probably stow it away for a while. I have the backing , etc, just not sure how I want to quilt it yet. Plus I need to get my fabric cut for MQ8.  So here it is. Not exactly what I envisioned but close (even today I had to make some changes to plans a couple of times. Once because I didnt like the looks the other because I was short material for the plan)

 

PS Just noticed that the dog had to be part of the pic of checking out the quilt. Maybe he is deciding whether he wants to sleep on it or not

oh thought I would do this pic too, shows fabric a little better. I was hoping the one blocks would have floated a little more. Long story of why they are even there.

Great Christmas quilt, Tami!  You have lots of time to finish it before the holidays.  Happy cutting MQ8.

And OF COURSE the dog wants to sleep on it!   Zzzzz!   :-)

thanks Judy. It was pretty hard to finish, as I made my white off white but all the prints, etc this year were bright white. I am excited to get going on MQ8. I have some ideas but you never know for sure until it starts coming together. I am usng up some blue that I got a great deal on but havent found anything to use it up on.
