well, here it is! it's done, and i must admit for all the bad words i uttered while quilting it and all the stitches i frogged at the beginning- it came out spectacular!
it is the raffle quilt for the hall county quilt guild (link here ) in northeastern GA. it was designed by Deb Karasik and i was told that it would not be published. (a link to her website here ) so if you want to buy tickets, i'll post as soon as i found out all the contact info. but don't buy too many :) i want my chances to remain good!
