I am not sure I will be able to have this done by Tuesday. It's not even basted yet, and the center is so different from the outer because of the embroidered parts, (it is stiffer, doesn't give at all vs the other squares). I need to take my time.

I want the 4 white corner triangles to have something great in them, and I don't have a clue yet what that will be!

here it is!

what is cute quilt. I love the colors. I think it would look nice in a kids room or a guest room.
I plan on trying my hand at one this year. I plan on doing dolphins. I've collected a few looks. Now I have to plan the fabric in the color it would look best.
Just love seeing the finished projects everyone is doing.

Really adorable!!! It's turned out so well....love the pink and the birdie's sashing..

Can you fussy cut the blue medallions from the outer sashing and applique them into the corners? They look to be about the right size...

This came out really great. I love this and you have inspired me to get a move on and sew more.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.
