after not too much swearing, i give you this:
can i get opinions on how it should be finished? i'm not doing the quilting. i think it needs some sort of solid border and then the bias in one of the fabrics - maybe one of the reds? no border? bias in black? i think i want it a scooch bigger. it's approx. 60 x 72 (minus seam allowances) and boy-child has a full sized bed so i do need to add something. i like this idea from the quilt along.
these are some seriously talented folks. i'm a little in awe to be sewing among them. click the link to see their work all together in our flickr pool.
