    I finally got my top finished. Thank you Barbara for the wonderful teaching and thank you to everyone else, the encouragement and hints has kept me going. I've started with SITD already and spotted my (deliberate) mistake. Ah well they always have at least one.

        460 days in the making and my wool appliqué on wholecloth linen quilt top is done! Onto the backing and then shipping off for quilting. I’ve learned so much over the past year. So glad TQS came across my Facebook feed on New Year’s Eve 2020!

              Well I’m almost there. Just need to add my borders now. Added the following tall buildings of my own design: The Liver Building, Liverpool, UK, Burj Khalifa, Dubai, UAE and from my home town of Shrewsbury in UK, The Lord Hill’s Column. Also personalised one of the small houses to represent my home.

                Katy, Great job on your Color My World quilt. I really like your personalized corner designs and the way you combined your
                solid colors looks great. Are you doing Garden Party Down Under? HelenW

                  Carole B, I don't know how I missed this post. I think you made the Worlds Best first time quilt. I can't express how much I love,
                  love, love it. Every detail is so well thought out. Who says you can't teach an old dog, new tricks. I try to learn a new trick or two
                  with every quilt.You certainly learned a lot last year. Thanks for documenting the whole process you went thru. I so enjoy the posts. HelenW
                  PS Did you send a picture to Wendy Williams? She will think she created a Rock Star.

                    Thank you for the kind words, Helen. I did learn a lot—and are still learning! I’m honored to say that Wendy has also been following my progress along the way from my posts on Instagram. I recently emailed her asking permission in case I end up showing this in a quilt show at some point. Hummm. Need to follow up on that. I’m now working on a small wall hanging for my great niece for her high school graduation. Thinking of trying hand quilting this when it’s done. Here are a few blocks. It’s a Sue Spargo design. My niece loves birds and these are adorable!

                        Carole B, Like your niece I too love birds. And your birds are so, so cute. She will love it. It is a size that would be great for
                        hand quilting. You stitching can't be beat. HelenW

                          Helen--Just heard back from Wendy giving me permission to show my quilt. She told me I should enter it in lots of shows.

                          Carole B, So happy for you. Start entering those shows and be sure to get back to us with pics
                          if you win any ribbons. I think is Blue Ribbon caliber. Go for it. Just shows what a beginning quilter can do. HelenW

                        Carole, you will have to read each show's rules carefully with all the embroidery on your quilt. Finding the proper category can be a challenge and it probably won't be eligible for every show. If in doubt, ask the show director before you enter.

                            I'm enjoying looking at all of the finished quilts and the quilts in progress. My world has gotten so busy that I don't have near enough time to sew lately but I did get the first round of houses done and used a panel for the center and background, actually pieces of several panels. It needs another border, maybe a piano key or log cabin style. Not sure when or if that will happen. I'm thinking I will have plenty of projects for the next generation to finish! I did make a compass using my first fabric choices and a single house to see what the quilt might have looked like if I actually found time to make it. For now I have numerous ideas for quilts and am having to prioritize. Plus I'm trying to get a few of my rulers finished with instructions before the local quilt show this fall.
