Fresh From the Frame

Goodness!  It took most of the day in dribs and drabs, but RRCB is almost officially done.  Though far from perfect, it is a sicnificant quilt in terms of time and pieces and angst.  I was quite determined to get this puppy finished off before the next mystery starts.  Just made it!  I feel that blue binding is definitely in order.  First though, I'm going to sit here for a few minutes and admire my handiwork:)

And admire it - you should. You're right about the time and patience it takes to put that one together. It is a beauty, and I agree with you on the blue binding.

WOO HOO! It is done! Big pat on the back for that one. I can't wait till mine gets back from the quilters. I am ready, and so not ready for the next one. But it will start I believe on Tuesday if we are ready or not. I haven't even thought of colors for this next one.

Congratulations on that big finish. Your quilt is lovely. I really enjoy seeing all of the variations this pattern has taken on. Now, on to the next mystery from Bonnie.

Fabulous! Want to quilt mine??? ;o)

The quilt looks terrific, quite an achievement and I think a blue binding will set it off perfectly. Will you be able to get it completely finished this week?

Only other quilters appreciate all the work in your quilt! It is amazing! I agree-blue binding will make it "pop!"

Way to stick to it and get this one finished. I like the Blues with this pattern.

Goegeous! I love the color combo and it is a BIG Project with a gazillion pieces, that's why I am admiring and not doing this mystery. ENJOY!

Truly a gorgeous quilt!

Very pretty. Love the color combo!

Fabulous quilt...you are a better woman than me. I save the BH mysteries but I've only started one and it has been languishing for a few years. Sigh.

That's just how I feel when I get a large quilt off the frame. Beautiful work so far. Look forward to seeing it finished.
