This may just be my favorite yet...

Top is done.  Specifics here in case you missed them.  I had a major debate with myself whether to leave it as the original pattern states or add the the white border.  After I added the white border the question was whether to add a scrappy border with another white border like I did on my pinwheel sampler, to add the blue border, or to stop.  Well, you can see the blue one and I am glad.  I think it looks nice.  I just wanted it a bit bigger than the original dimensions.  I could have just added some more blocks, too.  I love that this pattern is so versatile.  I really do like the pattern, and plan on using it again soon.

I love this quilt and all of its Verna goodness.  Bless you Kate Spain.

When I was debating, I laid the quilt out on Buddy's new bed and called him in for his opinion.  He had a strange look on his face and he said, " Wow, I didn't see the flowers coming."  That made me laugh.  I told him..."The quilt isn't for you or your bed."  That was quite a relief to him.  LOL.  He didn't help my decision at all.
