Now that is one big quilt!! RRCB top done - YIPPEE!!!

wow, that is really one big quilt!!  And I'm thinking about adding one more cheddar border on the last edge - but we'll see!!  I think the yellow will border the dark border so it doesn't just kinda fall off.

I have to wait for quilting until Amanda gets out of the shop, but I have a few things to get me going.  So not bad for my first mystery ever!!

The reds in the border are a bit brighter than what the picture shows, they sparkle a little bit through out.  The greens in the border are a bit dark and would go lighter if I had to do it over again, but I like it as is too.

  11. You did awesome on your first BIG quilt. I think a skinny yellow border would be perfect for a great framing effect. Now you make me rethink this - I might have to bite the bullet and make the big quilt instead of making 2 smaller.

  12. I love the quilt! You were talking of adding another border of gold to stop the dark but I think if you do the gold in the binding, it would be a nice edge finish.
    I may grab your pic for encouragement to do this quilt.

  13. I just love your colours - I've been watching this mystery and printing it out, but I didn't want red as the constant so was trying to decide what colour - your choice is what I really like best - glad you stuck to it. It is a beautiful quilt and I think the gold last border would bring it all together or just the gold as the binding would also do it.

  18. Oh Sue. It's beautiful!! Really, really wonderful work. I'm inspired. I was in my quilting room last night playing with my HSTs, pulling more paper, anxious to see it all together.
    I'm doubly anxious now. Can't wait. Well done!
