That was fast, Rosemary. I tried the tracing feature first in Illustrator and it didn't come out near as good as yours. Instead I traced over every single line and discovered I can't trace as good with a mouse as I can on paper. At least there were a lot of repeat sections that I could copy and paste, and those circles were super easy, much easier than doing them with fabric!

Thank you, so much, Rosemary and Annis! I have not decided whether I will do this BOM yet, but the ability to play a little with the color might just sway me... :D

Annis and Rosemary thank you so much! Don't know how you did it but I am very very grateful. Now I can spend time colouring it in until Margo gets her demos finished. :D

OK, it is a bit rough, essentially it is a tracing of the photo of the quilt, so it is not square, but hopefully it will help those who want to play about with different colourways

By the way there are different types of flowers on the left and right hand sides and different types of leaves on the top border, compared to elsewhere too.
Oh well you all now have a choice of 2 outlines, seeing as Annis just beat me to the posting :roll:

Here's my outline drawing. I enjoyed doing this but don't expect a repeat next year. Hopefully all of the lines join so you won't get any surprises. I did check the background and the color stayed where it was supposed to, but I didn't check all of the little pieces. I tend to work on a project until it's done unless I get distracted or something more important comes up, so that's why I finished so quickly. Now it's time to eat my lunch, leftovers from last night, and move on to other things. Have fun coloring!

Might still have a play with the borders, as there was a tool in Gimp that I was introduced to that might be just the ticket for that..........

Rosemary, go ahead and give it a try. The resolution isn't good enough for zooming in to accurately trace the appliques. I do have the top border appliques done. I only had to draw half then copy and mirror it. The sides and bottom will take longer. Maybe you could play with the design and make the smaller wall size that many are wanting to do.

I've just succeeded in doing the center of the quilt, without the 4 appliques, in EQ7. My eyelids are twitching a little, but it was worth it. I put colors in just to differentiate the different areas. I didn't do the border yet either.

I have the center about done in Illustrator. It's not perfect but should be good enough. I'm not sure how well I can do the appliqués on the outer border. I'm doing this in a hurry while waiting for my DH to bring dinner. Will probably run out of time soon, but will try to find time to finish it this week. When it's finished I will save it as a jpeg.
