My ARRR8 Quilt top has come home!!!


Can you believe this started out like this:


I made this center for my round robin group thinking that I would need to add a border or two at the end for it to fit our Queen sized bed.....but, as you can see from the first photo, it is so big I don't have space on my floor to display it! I'm super excited and in love with the evolution of this quilt. My only dilemma now....to make the backing. I don't have enough fabric to finish it quite yet. I am going to see, I may be able to use all that I have left over from the front to piece a fabulous scrappy back. That might be the right thing to do. I will update on the progress for sure.

Now, to add to this special mail day, one of the lovely ladies in the group (Susan)  made these burpies for me and sent them with the quilt top....she was the last to add to it. They are so perfect and I can't wait to use them. 



They were wrapped up so cute.....she made me two of them and here is a picture! 



Tomorrow I will show you the other surprise this group made for me! You aren't going to want to miss this one believe me! :)

  1. It's amazing! It is incredible to me how so many people can work on it, but it all goes together so well! LOL
