How about a small sprig of holly????

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Or some lights, or ornaments? That is pretty!

(Susan) Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

I love that, Mittsy! As I will be putting the last 4" (4 1/2" unfinished) border on, I know Just what I'll use for your last border! I also have "keystones" for the corners! I won't show what I have, because it's when you receive your center back, with all borders on, (and any additions you may add?!?!), that we'd like to see your finished top!

Everyone - please post the finished top, Before you add anything, and if you wish to add more borders and/or sashing - please post AGAIN when it's all done with your additions.

I don't mind if people post pictures of the work they do on mine as it is going to my son in law Ray's mom, Peggy. I love to follow the progress with pictures and imagine that others do too. I'm planning on making a short section of binding with the leftover fabric from my center.

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

Mittsy, that is soooo pretty! I'm looking forward to following your progress.

(Susan) Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

This is what I am going to make for my center. My DS went to live with his Father for a couple of months and decided to come home and he brought this little pup with him. Her name is Rosie and I started a black white and red quilt for him so I thought I would see what you all can do to dress her up LOL.

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

a Great Dane puppy???? oh boy.... hehehehe

Beautiful quilt top! Can;t wait to see the embroidery work on it!

(Susan) Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

That's a Great center - I posted it in "the other room". too.
And I KNOW I have some red; white; and black (separately) material that would go well with it. I guess I'm the first one to add borders to your center, Cher. Hmmmmm will give "a think" to see which one I will add!

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Wow, that quilt is beautiful! Love that block with the dog too!

Very nice! This isn't one of the centers for the Round Robin is it?

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Love that dragon!

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

I can't wait to see the completely project!

lovely dragon

I'm going to have to re-think my center - not happy with the colours AND I found my Iron-On Transfer Pencil!!!!
Having a white on white lily didn't do much for me.....
Now that I have the Transfer Pencil, I can simply draw over any picture I print up, and re-do it a lot quicker. The disappearing ink I was using this time was disappearing too fast (large panel - 19" square) and I was having to re-draw it every day...... very tedious and I'm afraid I was stopping far too often as I was getting BORED.
I'm Very Happy about finding the proper pencil!! They didn't have them at WM, so I had "settled" for something else and you Know how that goes......... lol

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

I unpacked the camera and took these pictures of my finished center. I'll be able to mail it soon after arriving in NY. We've enjoying our time in KY.

"Cher - that is stunning!!! Will you be sending fabric with it?"

(Susan) Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

Here's a drawing of what my center is taken from - I've used a hot iron-on transfer pencil on this printed copy, and will be ironing it on my fabric.
Obviously it won't be Exactly like this, but it's a representation of what it will be. It will take a bit to embroider it, but at least it won't be "white on white" lol

Susan, that is so pretty! Are you doing it by hand?

(Susan) Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

Yes, I am - I don't have an embroidery sewing machine.

(Cheryl) Wilmington, MA

Susan I just love that I just love birds!!!!!! It is going to be soooooo pretty

No I am sorry to have confused this. The dragon is on the pianapple black, white and red quilt I am making for my son. The puppy is his new baby so I wanted to continue and make him one with the same colors and Rosie's picture. So the Puppy is the center block I will be sending. I hope to be able to send some fabric along with it yes, I have a little left from the pinapple quilt.
Cher

(Susan) Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

I also posted this for you, in the "other room" Cher :-)

I love birds too, and the "tropical" colours are favs of mine! They're so rich looking.
I think what I'll do, for the peacock, is to outline all the areas, then fabric paint inside each....
I have a lot of fabric paint, and nowhere else to use it, except for Church banners I make, and there's only so many banners I can do lol
My MIL used to use them a lot and when she passed, I was the lucky recipient of them. That was 10 years ago, and while most are still valid, I DO need to use them up!

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

I used to really like using fabric paint. I threw my out YEARS ago because they dried up. Hey, they don't last FOREVER!! hehehe

(Susan) Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

they doooooooooon't????? lol
Well, I check mine now and then, cuz I use 'em, and there are enough of the colours I want to be good. Some of them actually have different enough caps that they don't dry out as easily.

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

Anyone needing my addy, I have updated it in the exchange. It will be good until beginning of October 2012. Thanks for your patience.

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

Well Susan, remember, I got my first batch almost 50 years ago!! LOL and there were YEARS when I never used one!

(Susan) Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

Thank you, Mittsy!!

LOL well Pat - I know they don't last Forever but some of mine are 10 years old. However, if you use them now and them (and more then than now LOL) I gather they're ok. I bought about 7 today, then came home and found the same colours are still viable in my current ones, so going to return the new ones lol

(Pat) Kennewick, WA(Zone 5b)

I used to really enjoy painting with them. Made some beautiful projects.
