Goal #1 - Done

Jared Takes a Wife - GREEN BEAUTY (81" x 94")


"Jared Takes a Wife" isn't a fitting name for this quilt; it was fitting for Bonnie's situation. So, I have renamed it to Green Beauty, since the block is Blackford's Beauty...and well, it's green.

Happy Sunday

Now....next on my list....

August BOM

I love, love, love this one! Excellent job! Whose home will this one find its way to? Or are you keeping it because it is too sweet to give away?

Absolutely stunning! I love everything about that quilt. I guess I might have to make one of my own. Thanks for the eye candy!

I'm not a green person, but your "Green Beauty" has won me over. It's gorgeous.

Green Beauty is gorgeous! Good luck with your next goal.

I'm glad you renamed this. Jared Takes a Wife really doesn't work. I'm looking forward to seeing how you quilt this. It's a stunner already!

I'm middle of sewing up the Blackford's Beauty block as part of your BOM and now I realize why this quilt (I l Ike the new name too) appealed to me so much (although I didn't realize it at the time because I didn't recognize the block): it's because I love the block. Thanks so much for introducing me to it!

Congratulations on getting another one finished to the flimsy stage. The borders look great. That green for the outer border is just right. Can't wait to see what you decide to tackle next.

Doesn't that look great. I don't use much green, but you've worked out the colour combinations beautifully.

Love, love, love it! I'm so jealous! Mine is much slower at coming together. I'm in the middle of putting the sashing in. I spent too much time this weekend doing other things. Some fun, some not too fun.
