    Trimming & Squaring...very boring but it shows you care LOL.


  4. Congratulations on being a big girl...I'm still working on that. :o)

    (I'm an immature girl who trims though...LOL.)

    Congrats to Donna!

    Probably inappropriate, but I want to comment on your previous post here (somehow I missed it). I LOVE the orange and red basket quilt, especially the fact that you included the partial baskets. You and Bonnie Hunter are tempting me to go orange (she had a "Dreamsicle" post a while back with orange pieced orphan blocks on white).


    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  8. A winner and its not me. Someone is getting a good giveaway win.

  9. Lucky Donna!
    It always amazes me that no matter how carefully I cut and sew and press those little stickers that so many still need trimming.
    Trimming beats binding!

  10. Congrats to the winner. I hate trimming too, but like you, I have found that my quilts turn out much better when I trim. Have a good day. Winona

  11. Congrats to the winner. She's very lucky.

  12. congrats to the winner and oh boy yes trimming makes a difference! I am looking forward to seeing this quilt finsihed!
    I love Kates blog , the fabrics are wonderful I am sure you will add bits and pieces to many of your quilts

  13. congratulations to the winner and thank you for hosting the giveaway.

    Yes I do trim too...


  14. Big congratulations to Donna (I'm jealous!! ha ha) Thanks Barb for a fun opportunity!

    Gee those fabrics look rather noice in your photo...the flower on the card is a flannel flower - an Aussie native that refuses to grow nicely in captivity but go for a walk in the bush and you are greated in Spring by these fab fuzzy flowers that actually DO feel like flannel. What a joy they are. Cheers for now.

  15. I don't like trimming either but it sure is worth it in the long run.
