I Love You

I got the February 2010 Quilters World magazine and fell in love with a quilt in it. I ran out to the fabric store and purchased the fabrics for it yesterday after work. Today I thought I would start it. I love black and white fabrics and red always looks great with them. So I enlarged the lettering, started cutting out, ironing down and found I just couldn't stop! Here are the fabrics below. I really love the one with people and dogs and cats on it. I was afraid it might be too busy to show the letters but it looks great.
And here is the finished top! I have been sewing most of the day but I just couldn't stop until I had it done. The pattern called for a pieced border but from the picture and the reds that were used it hardly even showed that it was pieced.....so.....I took the liberty to change it and just put a solid red border and I like it just as well as if I'd spent several hours piecing blocks.

Isn't it just the cutest!! I can't wait to get it quilted now. It is almost 60 inches square so I just don't want to try to quilt it myself. I love this quilt.

Oh, I love it too, Lynda! I'm always amazed by your drive to finish new projects; this is perfect with the single fabric border and all!
