Here's Betsy!

Betsy is quilted and bound and labeled an everything! I did this in the Cherish Nature charm packs and panel I won from Bear Paw Quilts and Donna Henning and another charm pack I won from Carrie of Rosie's Quilt Company! I only added the browns for the borders....who knew they would know just what to send me that would match my bedroom! I will be posting a pic once it is hung in there too. Today I am going to buy something to hang it from. My wall color is the light bird's egg blue and the drapes are chocolate brown so this fits right in! I really want to have my Double Delight on my bed (which wouldn't match this so much) but because of the smallest dog's chewing I won't leave it on the bed. So considering buying a plain bedspread for now.
Here is a close up of the fabulous quilting Ros Atwood did for me, she never ceases to amaze me! I love the color thread she chose and the leaf design in the border! I couldn't be happier with this quilt!

This is the panel I used for the backing. I have a little bit of it leftover and some charms too so I think that is going to wind up as a matching tablerunner for the bedroom.
Well, we are off to run some errands and go see Shrek!

A wonderful finish, congratulations. That fabric looks great in your Schnibbles. I've seen it used for other Schnibbles patterns as well and like them also. I guess you just can't go wrong with that fabric! The leaf quilting design in the border is perfect!!
