Working on my very own quilt

This one is just for me. The star blocks are made from assorted new fabrics, some of them lovely things I've been given in swaps, plus the remainder of my Pop Garden collection. Right now I've framed them with some Kona Snow, and I'm going to do another frame with the Tina Givens' chandalier fabric (I've been saving the yellow forever). I'm just trying to decide which colour of frame to match with which colour of block.

I think I like the brown/red and green/yellow combination better at the moment.

I am also playing with whether to do a thick white border or a thinner white border or a wonky white border.

I know I probably could have done different photos for each thing I was thinking of doing, but the thought of getting up and down off the floor that many times -- two hours after Thanksgiving dinner when I'm this pregnant -- was just not appealing, so I just did a few blocks in every different style I was thinking of doing. Whatever I do will be sashed in white, rather than in dirty beige carpet, which I think will improve the look a lot, too.

So, y'all, what do you think?

I think it's very pretty Jill and very "you" - those are colours that suit you well

I agree with Kristen. It is very you. And I love that fact that you're working something for you! :)

Thanks, ladies. I always try to consider it a compliment when people say something is very "me" . . . it probably means Dave is going to hate it, however.

Hi Jill, I love this brown, green and yello - looks like some of them are crazy patched and some are straight on - I love these cute
