Autumn Equinox! (Celtic Solstice)

 Finale!  I just added a black, plain border...and am calling this one done.    I like that the solid black is not a plaid...it is not stretchy, and maybe that will give the whole quilt a little stability.  I even have a backing ready, whoohoo!!
 The finished quilt...I am surprised that Rosie the poodle is not in the middle of this picture.
And...I had a few leftover units.  So, I made a little candle mat, and surrounded it with flying geese.  I still have a couple little bits and pieces left over, but I think I will put them in the orphan bin for now.

I had a heart yesterday.  A fresh post op heart, right from surgery...valve and bypass patient.  I really love these patients...a little unstable, a challenge.  He is up in the chair eating breakfast today, 12 hours after surgery. (I called to check on him)  Love that!!

Have a great day, everyone!!

Pretty, the extra block would make a cool label for the back too!

That black border is the perfect choice. I can not believe how quickly you put this together! It's perfect.

The perfect choice. Very nice quilt and will be a joy to display during the Fall season!

Oh Wow nicely done! this is so pretty! The black border sets it all off just perfectly!

My daughter has been visiting so I have not had a lot of sewing time since before Christmas.
I can't wait to get back to it!

Happy Sewing

Love the quilt!

Nancy said...

I agree that the black border is perfect: it allows the eye to rest and admire the rest of the quilt. Nicely done!

It's a winner, Julie!
Isn't it fun to make little quilts with the leftovers? Very cute. : )

Woo hoo a finished flimsy! The plain black is perfect as a final border. Do you have enough orange left to be binding? To me that would be the perfect finish. Love it :)

Ruth said...

It's stunning! It's amazing how bonnie's quilts come together. I'm planning to start one from her Scraps & Shirttails soon.

Karen said...

It looks fabulous. Hoping mine turns out as well. Love your colors.

Nann said...

The colorway for your CS looks like a real tile floor. Very nice!

It is gorgeous! I love the FG border, it finishes it off so well.

Mary Ann said...

Pretty! I still have the borders to add to mine. Nice to hear about a heart doing well. As I work in Blood Bank I know about all the hearts. And now we are doing TAVR's too.
