From when we started this at the first retreat in Minnesota and many of us were cutting out our blocks (pieces) there..I have finally regained some steam and completed the top today! I have the backing fabric and a saved piece of the original fabric. Here tis: oh of course, ACE had to go on there with his squeaky toy. Same as a cat would.This message has been edited.

Woo-hoo... congratulations! It's a beauty!
You know, I still have one of those somewhere.
As I recall, it just needs the border... duh!
I should find it!!
Very cute assistant!
OO I found the cutting out picture and I'm using the 60 deg. triangle to fussy cut the piece I guess. I'm sure I have more of Maxine R.'s pictures too.
Oh that is pretty, like your original fabric. Doesn't it feel good to finish something that has been on the back burner for so long???
Yes, but it grew bigger than I thought it would be. Oh well. That's a lot of small pieces.
“May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”
That came out great!!!!! Love the extras overlapping the border!!
my philosophy: there are no real mistakes in quilting, just design opportunities!!
What Muggomuggo said. Very much. Congrats on finishing a UFO!

Congrats on finishing the top. Like the colors and the spill over the border.
Yeah, I remember that fabric, beautiful!
Yours turned out great!!! I like the "spillover" on the corners!
I see mine...every time I'm in my sewing room.... sitting there... in it's little basket....all cut out...

Absolutely beautiful! I love the pattern.
Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love.
Love the quilt. Nice work!! Great colors.
Love the WBW quilts. Have my fabric and some day I will make one. Do glad yo are working on yours again... Chris
That turned out beautifully, Cheryl. Congratulations on getting that done.
Now where is my fabric? Never got it started in Minnesota, but it will get done one day..............

Good for you!
Does this hat make my butt look big?
That turned out really pretty - congratulations. I did see my bag of pieces the other day when looking for something else. Maybe if I take it out and work on it in little chunks of time I can finish before it disintegrates
WOW! That is PRETTY!!!
I don't mind coming to work. But that 8 hr. wait to go home is a drag.
Cheryl...your quilt turned out just beautiful! And the lady at the ironing board is awfully pretty, too .
This kind of quilt is on my bucket list...bought a book about it just this year.
Merci beaucoup. If you take it a step at a time and not want to rush it, it's enjoyable. I'll post a link to a man's OBW's that he sells I guess and he just can't get enough of 'em. Hang on a minute while I go get it,
here it is ...http://www.bruceseeds.com I hope that comes out for you..I copied and pasted it and it didn't have all the right information. They're worth checking out.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Auntie Reba,
Thank YOU. What's wrong with the link?
Ha, ha. for a moment i thought the dog was part of the quilt. Lovely quilt though. worth the wait!!
Gorgeous, Auntie Reba. Thanks for showing us the pics.
beautiful job Cheryl!
Fabulous job Cheryl! I remember that Retreat - my first time meeting you! If you want you can come work on mine - I got as far as doing all the fussy cutting and haven't touched it since
I am pinning it now and I work 20 mins. on it and stop. It's so tedious. The thing is much bigger than I expected and I didn't use all the cut blocks. But Nicki, I DO love that iron!
Cheryl, I should have bought one too as mine as the feet on my are just now starting to stick... gotta use distilled water!
