MiraB ... that's going to be a beauty! I was like Anael, and saw it as an old tile pattern and thought too, that it was a monotone sort of an effect ........ and liked it! Your kids are pretty smart ... DD "gives" you your quilting assignments. Then the BloodHound sniffs his way home to those delicious aromas!!
Watch out Anael ... you never know who might show up on your doorstep now that you made that slice!!
