    Woohoo, finished
    Homeward Bound. I used Kaffe fabrics. Got waylaid when My husband had surgery and then we moved. Thanks to an ice storm I had time to finish the top.

I was thinking of a simple keyboard border???? Not sure that would complement the overall pattern.

    I would not have gotten to this point without Barbara and the forum and Sarah's beautiful pattern.Thank you all.
    Karen, Here are a couple ideas to let you see what a border might look like. I could not find a flower fabric like Barbara
    suggested, but that would look great too. HelenW

    “And that’s a wrap”! This was a challenge at times but I love the finished quilt. I tried to make the border look somewhat like Northern Lights around the cabins. Thank you to Sarah Felke, Barbara Black and TQS for another great project.

    Look at the beautiful big stitch quilting on Pick A Petal, the 2024 BOM. There are photos on the BOM page and you can see it and Jen Kingwell’s description about it on her Show.

    This is my first applique quilt and I have loved it very much. I enjoy being out of my sewing room and in the living room with my family. I do not have free-motion quilting experience and do not have it in my budget for custom quilting. I have enjoyed "big stitch" quilting in the past. Has anyone considered hand quilting with Pearle cotton and a big stitch? I am currently on month 9 but am looking forward to planning the next phase! I have enjoyed seeing all of your beautiful creations.

    Thank you, Barbara. I am not doing Pick a Petal, but will watch your videos anyway, as I learn so much from you. Thank you again for the past year's guidance.

    Your piano key border would work. An even simpler solution is to add a pretty floral border, not real strong or busy, just something with colors that compliment your top so far.

    Helen W. I haven’t decided
    I do have a big round hoop I can use
    But for traveling I will large stitch baste then criss cross, up down and across.

    Gypsybobbin, Beautiful, do you use a hoop when hand quilting and I would love it if you describe
    your process. I was thinking I would like to do that also, but have never hand quilted. HelenW

    My top is done! This was quite a journey but a fun one. Thanks to Sarah for this fun pattern and to Barbara for her tips and tricks! I didn’t plan on the colour placement and once completed I can see some areas I would have changed, but overall I’m very happy. I was determined to just use my stash and succeeded.
