Barb and Connie, love what both of you did with the "2013" substitution. So glad you posted, even though I'm not doing this BOM, it was so nice to see how you problem-solved the border issue and made it look beautiful and graceful (and perfect, might I add!). :D

I commented in Show and Tell, but I just have to say it again. I love what you did! :D

Here's my solution to the top border...

There's a picture of the whole thing in show and tell. :D

You bet, Barb! I'm really excited that it might be possible to finish assembly, quilting and binding before the end of the year! Stop laughing, guys, I did say MIGHT! :shock: :D

Looks great Barb! And I think it's a good size - if you made it much larger it would compete with the size of the flower pot at the bottom.

I'm with you - I'm ready to get everything sewn together! Deb :)

Yay, Month 9 done! I told my husband that if I had realized in January how complicated this quilt was (for me, anyway, probably not for all of you experienced quilters), I might not have had the nerve to tackle it.

I like my little posey, perhaps should have made it slightly larger - but I'm okay with it. It has been cool to see all of our various solutions.

I am posting a shot of the entire top border in Show n Tell, although it doesn't really show up very well, being so long and skinny. My solution for the awkward vine ends was to add an extra blue leaf arranged across the end. (Because somehow, once again, I made extra leaves. How do I keep doing that? Must be that crystal ball thing.)

Fun to see what everyone's come up with for 2013's replacement. I've not started the 'Two of us' yet - but I intend too!

Barb :D

Awww, Deb, those babies are even cuter up close! Thank you for posting the close-up - everything looks fabulous to me. And your husband is nuts - definitely eggshells in that nest. :lol:

Thanks for all the kind comments on the bird's nest. I attached a close up picture, per Barb's request. I don't really like close up's because you can see all your mistakes :oops: - it's surprising what you see in a picture that you don't see in real life. The babies were fun to do but every time I'd draw out the beaks they would look like bunny ears - I finally started moving them more to the side and they looked better. Also, from a distance, my husband said that they look like they're sitting in a bath tub and the egg shells look like bath bubbles :lol:

Wow, Deb, the wee birdies in the nest are adorable!! What a fantastic idea you had to insert a nest; it makes me smile to look at your photo. I wish I could see a closeup of the nest (hint hint).

And finished on September 7 - woo-hoo for you too! :D

I'm still turning under edges on the zillion leaves but the end is in sight.
