Christmas Bow Tie - Finished!

YEAH! One more UFO is finished --- put the final border on the Christmas Bow Tie tonite and it does have a different lookChristmas Bow Tie - finished The measurements are 94 x 110 - I really didn't intend it to get so big! and there is not a place in my house where I can lay the whole thing out!Christmas Bow Tie - finished I think I like the darker border, and it could have been even wider probably. It's really hard to get the full effect without hanging up or laying down flat -- I'm going to have to get my husband to buy a bigger house!! Boy! Wouldn't he go for that !?! NOT!...Christmas Bow Tie - finished I can see it now,,, Oh Darling,, I need a house with a room big enough to hang or lay flat my big big quilts! He would probably tell me to clean the garage and use the floor out there... LOL!

Thanks to everyone who has left me the great comments! Yep, I have thought about donating to charity but it might be a good Christmas present for my brother and sister-in-law? I'm sure that quilting will also enhance it -- ok long-arm-ers,,, ideas? I was thinking that on one of the borders if there were words about Christmas or Christmas songs that might be fun - not sure how to do the bows.... small stipple in the background to make the bows pop?

And yes,,, I thought this was a great idea a couple of years ago.... and maybe when it is all finished ( meaning ALL finished where the bindingis sewn on ) I might like it more, but for now, I'm thinking it is going to live in someone elses house!

If you put it away-get some distance-you might like it again. Sometimes all the effort it took to finish it can color the product in your view. (i.e.-exhaustion)
