Wendy, Love your two virtual quilts!  Great fun. Which program did you use to create your quilts?

Sharon--your blue and white quilt is gorgeous. Love the border.  It really complements the quilt!  I think you could go either way depending how big you want your quilt. I think it would look good with just a dark blue binding. But if you want it bigger it will still look great with another border.  Have fun!

 Now, to see if my library has Here Comes the Brides, you made me want to see it again. :)

Martha  - I had to do Interlibrary loan to get them, my library didn't have them but we are ordering more classics, may have to request they purchase them.  I'm ready to watch season 2 when it comes in.  Got Castle season 2 to watch while I sew now.

Wendy the virtual quilts are wonderful!  Did you do that in EQ7?  I have that program for years and still haven't had time to sit and learn it :-)

I have EQ7 and love it!  I've been with EQ since the beginning...quite a few years ago!!  I don't use it to it's fullest all the time, but when I need to do something, I can depend on EQ7  I have more virtual quilts than I'd ever make in 3 lifetimes!  So much fun to play.

Still sewing together HSTs.....

Here's mine. I had some HST's left over and I didn't want to buy anymore fabric, this top was all from my stash, so just added a simple border. Wow this top came out pretty big. DGD wanted to help Mommie hold up the top.

I've got a start but think I'll vary the colors a bit more..the high contrast makes it outstanding..love your border too!  Have always wanted to do an all blue quilt.

Everyone's quilt tops are looking great. Some colors I never dreamed of. I have not gotten around to taking a pic of mine yet. been one of those weeks. I do have it sandwiched and thinking about the quilting. I need to pick up some thread. I saw what I wanted the other day, but saw there was a sale coming up so couldn't see any reason to buy it when I didn't need it yet. So, just sitting here trying to think of what I want to do, so time for someone to post theirs quilted to help give me some ideas lol

I know what you mean about one of those weeks only with me its like a soap opera.  My travel iron cracked and can't find one similar in stores pointed tip and non stick bottom.  Have to start holiday shopping.  My MQ9 probably wont be finished in time for voting , but it will get finished.

Very nice Bonita!  Nice you got to make it from your stash.  Looks like a cute little DGD hiding behind it.
