    I finished my top a couple weeks ago and it has taken this long to figure out how to take the photo. All my floor space is taken up with the Christmas tree. I pinned it to the top of the dining room curtains and used a couple pins on the sides, but I couldn't really get it as straight as I wanted due to the curtains moving around. I changed the colors for the pieced outer borders as I wanted something not quite so pastel. I also changed the house colors. If I had realized when I made the stars back in month 6 how pale those corner stars would look, I would have changed those fabrics as well. At least it's done (and my husband thinks it looks nice) and maybe I can get it on the machine next year to quilt it.

    Thanks, Barbara, for all the extra work you do to make it easier for us to sew our quilt tops.

    Linda

    Thanks Carol and Monique! I have to admit that I wanted to quit so many times but somehow managed to stay. I've learned a lot just not sure Appliqué is something for me. Hope TQS will consider something different for 2025.

    The top is done, quilting to come. I’m so glad I tried using a black background on this project. It has tiny colored dots on it as well. Click image for larger version

    What a great experience working on this quilt. Thanks to Alex Anderson I was able to to use her suggested turned-edge applique and machine applique the entire quilt. Thank you, Alex! Also, thank you Barbara for all the great help and tips. You made the completion of this project possible for me.

    Congratulations Alice. Your quilt is lovely. The squares as a second border are very creative, and they work well. That gives me an idea for another quilt I'm making. Merry Christmas and all the best on your next project.
