Borders Attached

I'm still talking myself into liking this piece.
An Oxymoron --maybe--a garden quilt in the snow....but it was a beautiful Sunday.

It's still below freezing so the snow just brushes off. When a friend and I signed up for this block of the month we had not seen what the finished product would loook like.  It really has a "Northwoods twist" to it and I pretty pleased with it. It's just not what I pictured it looking like all completed.  I still have wool vines and flowers to go on the border.

Every time I worry about Ransom being cold outside he does something like this:


We've been putting in extra hours at work ---better too busy than not busy enough....

Gratitudes:
dark chocolate cream for my coffee
that new spool of thread
Puppy prints in the snow....You're never alone.

If you really don't like it, I'll send you my address. you shouldn't have to keep a quilt that you don't like.

At first glance, I thought you had taken a picture with clouds in the background.....not snow! I hope you get spring there soon.

I like the plaid border. I am a plaid person.

I really love that Melanie. It does have that north woods look to it.

I'm a big fan of the border and love the vines that will be going on!

Blessings,
Sue

Ransom sure looks happy! I'm guessing he doesn't think it's too cold. I really like your quilt...I think it will be great with the vines in the border.

Loving the picture of Ransom rolling in the snow! (and wishing for snow like that...) We're back to the low 30's with pretty gusty winds after a week or so of spring.
And your quilt is, of course, wonderful. Can't wait to see it with border vines and quilted and all that jazz!

I can't believe you aren't thrilled with your new quilt! I am, I just LOVE it!!! Dark chocolate coffee cream huh? Sounds yummy, I have cinnamon bun cream in the fridge this week. I have a real soft spot for all those tasty creams. =) It makes morning coffee even more mandatory. LOL

I think it's gorgeous, Melanie! And I'd be more than happy to take it off your hands if you really don't like it...... Heh heh.

I love the borders! Can't wait to see it after you get the applique on! We have a golden that does the same thing Ransom does. Rolls around...then sits up and starts biting the snow. He loves it!
