I'm about half way done with step 6. I'll post a pic when done, but now I'm rethinking my border fabric. The butterflies just don't look right with all the geometry in the top! So, I think I'll just use more of the same fabric for inner/outer borders. Unless, of course, I can find a suitable replacement between now & completing the rest of the top. ;-). Everyone's quilts look so beautiful!! I hope mine turns out half as well.

Donna, your quilt is beautiful.  I did fix the oopsies on my quilt top, yay!!

I won't be able to get anything done for a little while.  Having foot surgery tomorrow and that will cause a delay.  In the meantime I am loving seeing all the quilts and how they are being completed.  Getting some really good ideas.

Yes,tnmtgrl, we are staying at the White Sand Beach Resort just steps away from the beach. It is beautiful here. How could you ever leave it?

I sat this one out. I had planned to participate, but had too much going on. Everyone's quilts are beautiful. The pattern is really unexpected. What great work. I am loving seeing everyone progress.

Sandy, what a wonderful quilt to have. I hope my granddaughter passes the quilts I've made her down to her children and on down. I'd love to think that someday, my great   great grandkid will say "Look what my great great grandma made waay back in 2005". What a wonderful legacy. Kind of gives me goosebumps

Half of quilt top is assembled  and because I didn't square up some things it is looking like the first quilt I ever made but I'm having fun.  Its better to make a imperfect quilt then none at all.  This is pic of my first quilt just to get a laugh.

FINISHED!  Well, except for the backing, quilting and binding. Here is the final kitty approved quilt top. Plus another picture without the cat.  Just like many of you I had a border fabric selected, the it was just too busy for the quilt.

Martha I absolutely love yours I'd trade in a heartbeat  Love your colors.  As for my lap quilt that went wrong I gave it to some neighbors for their newborn they were very thankful.  Hopefully tomorrow I'll get the top done .

It is very beautiful!!

We actually lived in town in East Bradenton but my DH worked on the island. we both spent our teen yrs. in Manatee County plus the first 30 yrs. of our marriage. we left for a number of reasons but mostly because after we lost our youngest son in a car accident there were just too many memories and my DH couldn't take the humidity anymore with his asthma, so when he retired we moved to the mountains. Our oldest son and his family still live there in Sarasota...we visit once a year and they come here once a year. Hope you have a wonderful time there!! Don't forget the sunscreen!!

Everyone's quilts are beautiful!  I love the borders using the same fabrics!  I hope I have enough left to do that.  Maybe I can use my floral for the back.  I'm still working on step 5 but will get pics up when I get more done so everyone can help spot any turned HSTs. 

As I was putting blocks together, I considered enlarging the pattern for 1 block to make a one-block crib quilt.  I figure if I use 3" strips for the 9 patch, the quilt will be about 40x40 before borders.  I think it would be adorable that size in some contrasting baby fabrics! Or maybe one solid with one baby print!

Nana, this is my first MQ on QCA and I loved it!  Take care of yourself while taking care of hubby!

I'm at a retreat right now and the gals here are watching my MQ rows come together.  I've been showing them the pictures of your wonderful quilts as they're coming together, and these gals, too, say that the borders using the same solids are very attractive.  I'd have to go shopping to see if I could find more of my fabric in order to do that.  I still want to try the geometric fabric I found in my stash, so maybe by this afternoon I'll have the interior finished so I can pin and photo this fabric as a possible border and see what you all think.
