Here is a better pic:

Today, I took a few pics outside of the quilt top I made:

Doesn't that green look wonderful?? I am SO glad it was changed for me!! Now that I have uploaded it - I can see a BIG boo-boo!! Gawd!! I tell you, I have NEVER unpicked as much as when I was making this quilt - from my own stupidity lol!! At one stage, I unpicked a block, as it was not the right corner one, then to sew the same one back on again!! Really, I am not the 'Queen of Un-pickers' as Roseanne will verify with you all lol!! I will be putting this aside for the time being - till after Xmas, when I will fix that block, and add my borders. Now, I was thinking of putting a row of flying geese on the top and bottom just to make it longer, adding a border or two and a peeper around the whole lot........ I would love suggestions of colours and combos before I pop over to Pauline's to get the supplies!!

Also, before I head off, Jan is joining in on the PIF - she only needs 1 more person..... I would love to join, but have already done it and need to get some of my own stuff finished...... so if you are interested pop over and join in on the fun!!

And, Katie has uploaded some pics of her trip to Tasmania, pop over to check them out (must learn how to do those colleague's) they look fantastic!!

Better get going, I had more sewing to do....... I have actually got a finish, but that can wait for another day...........

THANKS Sarah, it looks *sigh* sooo good! If you hadn't mentioned your mistake I would never have looked for it, or found it. Gosh it's going to be fantastic when you finish it!
I can't think to suggest anything for your finishing, sorry. Be interesting to see how they all end up being finished....

The colours of your quilt are fab. Maybe you should be Amish and leave the mistake in the quilt.
