    She wanted black with turquoise stars.....for a queen size quilt, this is it so far. It's 5 stars across and 5 stars down I'm thinking of a 6 or 8 inch sash border on the ends, of course in black. This is what she wants! Pic so far


    The borders have a black background with a silvery twirly design so it's not blatantly black.....a way to slowly go towards the dark! [​IMG] I have no idea how to design the back...any clues!?

    Thank you ladies! What would you use for the back? I'm kinda stumped.....maybe a small gray/white floral print to soften it up? Or.......I don't know! Any ideas?

    That's GORGEOUS.

    Me personally for the back. 2nd picture at the cats butt there is a blue/white spirally print. That way if she wants a softer quilt she can just flip it over and it's sophisticated.
