Love This Pattern!

The binding is done, the label is on...Stargazer is ready to be delivered to Hospice of the Comforter...the event is November 5th...yippee done in plenty of time.  I was very happy with the top when I finished it...I was thrilled beyond words when it came back from the quilter...got the binding on it and I loved it.  As Mr. Quilt Holder was holding it up for me to take a picture...
 I told him I almost felt guilty...I'd keep this quilt in a minute.  I LOVE it!  But then I had a big talk with myself...this quilt was made for one purpose and one purpose only...a donation to Hospice of the Comforter...I'm back on track again...it's all ready to  be delivered.  It was a great pattern to work with...thank you so much Kelly!

How beautiful! I'm just finishing a quilt that actually has no planned purpose, and I was thinking of donating it to Hospice. Perhaps this is my sign that that's what I should do with it.

Oh, it would be so hard to give that beautiful quilt up ... but good for you to remind yourself why you made it. You could always make another one for yourself. ;-)

It's just gorgeous, Carol! I can see why you would want to keep it. There are quilts that leave here that I have the same feeling for, but we all need to do a little 'talking with ourselves' :D
You did such a great job on that and I just love those colors!!

You enjoy your awesome weekend!
Hugs,
Sue

I'm loving it, too! I think you just might have to make yourself one! I'm already contemplating my color scheme when I make one.....thanks for the inspiration! And I just know you are making someone really happy, especially when they are needing some comfort so badly! Giant pat on the back! :o)

It is a lovely pattern and you did a fantastic job with the color layout. That perky red is just the thing. I know giving it up is hard, but oh the joy it will bring.

Oh Carol, it's beautiful! You did such a wonderful job - I'd have a hard time parting with it too :) :) You're such a sweet heart to give it to charity! Mkay - I'm drooling here over those Kiss n Pretzel Treats with the M & M's! And, yes, I was singing right along with you as soon as a read your title!! Hope you have a wonderful time Carol! You deserve it :)

A lovely quilt and a wonderful thing to do with it. It's going to provide great comfort for someone.

If you like the quilt, and want to keep it, then you know that whomever gets it, will like it too. You'll just have to make one for yourself now (and another one for me, too ; ). It is a lovely quilt.

Hi! Greets from Finland! I love the quilt! It's wonderful! It's so nice to find other quilters from the other side of the world! :)
