Mystery Solved--Carolina Christmas Flimsy is Done!

I worked on Carolina Christmas last night and finished up the borders this afternoon. They went on absolutely perfectly! I was impressed because usually pieced borders and I do not agree on size limitations. LOL. In the picture it is laying on top of Double Delight which I had just photographed so that blue and pink that is sticking out is not part of it. I thought it was bigger than Double Delight, but it is just about the same size wide and is a little longer so not as HUGE as it appears at first. I was hoping the purple would really come out but with the pieced border I am seeing more of the green, but at least the orange is toned down. I hope Hannah and Jeremy love it when it is done. Now who is up for quilting this one? Roslyn? Stephanie? If neither of you volunteers I can send it on to Wisconsin to my gal there...I already have two out with Becky K. and three I am going to (hopefully) give to Roslyn next week but this one is huge..so any takers ladies?

yup--kicked my butt on this one. Still waiting to find time to start step 2. Is that orange I see? Lovely scraps.

If they don't want it I'll take it!

Big quilts don't intimidate me, sweetie, those are what I mostly do. The largest I have done was over 130"! I don't make small quilts myself except for baby quilts & even those are usually 55-60".
Your Carolina Christmas looks SO different in these colors, not at all holiday -ish! Who would have thought?
