      Your added border is so nice. I would love to copy it, but I don't know if I will have the energy after finishing the quilt.

      Thank you ladies for posting your finishes. I am enlarging them & it is helping me get the stars straight in my head as I get to that point.

        This was WAY out of my color comfort zone, and there are LOTS of mistakes that I didn’t bother to correct, but in my book, “finished is better than perfect”, and I’m glad that it is done!

          This proves a quilt doesn't have to be Custom quilted to be lovely and useful.

        Here is my finished quilt top. I have enjoyed making it, been challenged along the way but so pleased with end result. It now has to join a queue for quilting.

          Thanks, Barbara. The lighting in the picture was not the best so I appreciate your comment.

        This is the most complex quilt I have ever made and I am thrilled with it!!! Barbara’s blog helped immensely as did everyone who shared their struggles, tips & successes on the forum. This was my 1st TQS BOM even though I’ve been a member for a few years. The colors & geometric design appealed to me. Plus, I retired in 2022, so I knew I'd have time. I didn’t buy the kit, mostly used my own stash except for the background fabric.
        It was a challenge at times. I made smaller, easier birds. I made sure to trim my colored strips on the last border to the 9.5”, they were all too long by at least ¼”. The next to last borders were too long, so I took them apart at the leaf block & shortened. Pat Sloan said on a recent video that unsewing is part of the quilting process, so I keep that in mind now LOL
        Whoever decided to release months 11 & 12 together, thank you!

          Carol G. You have been a complete joy to have making comments and enjoying the whole year of
          stitching. Your quilt turned out wonderful. It is the colors you used made a very busy quilt look peaceful. I especially like your blues, yellows and purples. Great job. Looking forward to next year.
          That pattern looks like your style since you really liked this one. I will probably go off in my own
          direction again. I like the pieced blocks and center, I am a little tired of flowers. I am thinking
          maybe using butterfly blocks or bird blocks for the second ring of blocks. What ever I do. it will be
          fun. I still have my houses and logs to do for this year. HelenW

          Helen - thank you so much for your kind words! I know a forum or a group is only as good as its members. I try to contribute because I have found help from members who post. You always have good comments for all of us.
          This was my first TQS BOM. I don't plan on participating next year. I want to get back to piecing, and using up scraps!

        quilt top is done! I am going to custom quilt it on my Bernina Q24. The green fabric will be my backing.

          Used all my own fabrics, except for background. Didn’t do anything for 3 months and really worked hard the last 3 months to get it finished. I don’t have a wall large enough to display if for a photo and I couldn’t get the new picture uploaded!

            Finally the top is done. May fix the bird on the left top side or not. Month 11 and 12 were easy to do.

              I am grateful to be done! After a few months, I decided to stop hand applique and do machine appliqués. Otherwise, I’d be working on this till next year. It’s imperfectly perfect, simply because it’s finished!!!
