what to do, what to do???

i have three quilts that i'm getting going and i don't know which one to stick with. this grey boarder one will then have a block next to it with a solid center and a white boarder. i'm wondering if i should do a white boarder on the pink and grey boarder on the solid? anyone want to have an input??? :)

this pink block is going to be cut up for a bento box square. i'm going to try and keep my squares in the same color scheme. we'll see if i can but i'm going to try. :)

and this last one i thought i'd start with a 4" square and boarder it in with 2 - 2 1/1" boarders. so then i thought i could do the opposite on the other block. 2 1/2 in the middle one 2 1/2" boarder and then a 4" boarder. well the 4" boarder ended up being a 3.25" boarder but if i use some solids in this quilt i think that it might have the affect that i'm going for. :) that would be nice. :) have a STUPENDOUS week!

off to its new home:):):)

well, i finished my 36 patch and just sent it off to my sister-in-law today. i think i'm going to keep one of these going all the time. i just love them!!! i did take the green row out to make it a bit smaller and because i didn't really love it in this quilt. i think it will fit a twin. it's about 68x85 or so. the actual size isn't always my biggest concern. as you can tell if you visited me before. ;) just put it this way. it's usually bigger than smaller. :)

for the backing i used what i had and it was great! there is a white stripe at the end that i didn't get in the picture. and this is my new favorite binding!! this polka dot by jennifer pagnelli or something like that. i guess i must not be a detail gal. :)

well here is the fabric i bought at my favorite store that went out of business. this isn't an up to date picture but this is the majority. i'm working on a christmas quilt with fabric from the sale so when i get some blocks done i'll share away!!! hope you have a great day!!!
