Love your boots Chooky! The toe of your boot might work just as well as your whip...so glad I am on the other side of the world from you! LOL Dont worry about me though...I am putting my bottom strips on as I type this comment...well actually I just took a little break! Then I will take it to my long arm quilter fairy tomorrow. Bind it in my sleep on the 30th and it will all be done for the Canadian 31st! LOL
I like your quilting too. I thought I might leave the blocks alone and just quilt in the stripping and little piecing in between the blocks...humm...now you have me thinking!

A whip would have been good too!! Maybe an added label?? I have a friend doing my quilting and I think she will have it back in time to bind by D day(close anyway).

I like how you captured the Anni look in your rendition and am rethinking my quilting after seeing yours.
