Decision made and a giveaway.....!

This is the fabric i finally picked for the block borders and sashing on our guild group strip quilt. Only took 2 months!! Decided it had to come from the stash, and so it did. Here's how half the blocks look laid out on the 'design floor'........
Barbara, Judy, Liz. LaVerne, Marie and I all made enough strip sets to give to each other and keep one group for ourselves. Each came with a label from it's quilter for the back. I can't tell you how special this quilt will be when it's finished (at least a flimsy!) on Sunday. That would also mark 50 posts on this blog I thought might never get past 20!! So leave a little comment blurb and this little charm pack will be on it's way!

My DH can pick a number between 1 and ??, however many little comments come by...Thanks to all who stop by for a visit, and especially those of you who take the time to leave a wee hello...  :-)  Have a great weekend -- see ya's Sunday. p.s. make sure there's a way to contact you in your comment

Love the fabric you picked for the sashing! I have a small piece of a similar fabric I purchased years ago and, of course, now that I only have a tiny piece - I love it! The quilt looks great!

Great pick and from stash! Hope to see it in September at the guild.
And 50 posts - aren't you glad you started a blog? Looking back at earlier posts makes you realize how much you have done - which I usually forget when there is no record... And a give away - wohooo!

I love your fabric choice!! It really adds to all the colorful strips. I should get busy on mine but I have about 5 projects in line in front - all with impending due dates! How exciting to maybe win your giveaway! You sure pick out pretty fabric!!!
