Buckeye Beauty Final border & a GIVEAWAY!

I know I said I was going to add another row of squares to the outside....
but Hubby (Whose artistic eye is 20/20)...said it was enough and to just frame them with the cream again.

I cannot wait to quilt this one. I want to try Bonnie Hunter's way of doing Baptist Fans without marking!
And doesn't it look great just thrown across a chair?
On the right you can see my quilt police (Bess).
Really she is a thread sucker. And a thread pooper...what a mess...and she has also eaten two threaded quilting needles and then needed surgery to remove the needles from her tummy and the thread that was wrapped around her tongue. You would think she would learn that this hobby is NOT good for her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is now too big for my design wall. I so want to move the design wall to another part of the room. I could spin it and have the entire length going up and down instead of across. This would involve major moves in this room.
Sounds like a good time to paint too!!!!! Oh James!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Dionne has a great giveaway over on her very colorful blog. She says she heard me on the radio interview with Bonnie Hunter and Pat Sloan. That was such a hoot!! I cannot believe I got through to talk to Our Bonnie.
Anyway here is her blog address. Tell her I sent you!!! http://sewmanyquilts.blogspot.com/

Oh my, that turned out just beautiful and I too cannot wait to see it quilted. Your top reminds me of an old Jacobs Ladder UFO that is now calling to me..... LOL
Oh, and the border on your quilt is perfect :)

Your quilt looks so nice. I like the borders. I may do something like that on my pinwheel quilt.

The border is a good extension of the quilt. A very good finish.
