Annis, they are both beautiful. The striped one one the left grabs my attention. I like it best, but maybe it pulls your attention away from the appliques and intricate piecing? I tried hiding one half with my hand and looking at each side. Either way it's a winner.

This baby is just the best ever !! IMHO..when I do the squint test ..the triple border with circles
stands up the best for me. The stripes seem to just fade out, not giving a good edge. Of course,
it's what you see that counts ! I know it will be wonderful regardless . Marilyn

Which one? The striped fabric on the left or the triple border on the right. And do I have to make the 28 appliqued circles! I have a little over 3/4" to work with so the green strip on the right would be about 1/2" wide which would mean the circles should probably be 1/4". I'm not sure that I want to do those but I have too much time in this quilt to take the easy way out. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks, Ritzy. Sending my patterns there was a last minute thing. Next year I will be better prepared. One of the quilts was supposed to be hung but the booth didn't have enough wall space and I told the owner to only put out what she had space for. Maybe I need to have my own booth one of these days.

Well, I know that feeling and I made the big version! It took me two days just to snip all the stray threads while preparing the quilt top for quilting :shock: I thought I would never finish it.

Oh Annis, they are just amazing! I hope you are pleased with how they look because they look really good to me. I can't imagine sewing such tiny pieces together and ending up with anything other than a bunch of frayed threads. :lol:

Enjoy Houston.

Rita. :D
