Whoa; considering that I had just posted before you that she might consider a grid pattern of straight lines, I feel your comment might be considered a bit harsh......"just plain ugly"? Really? Not your preference perhaps, but that's whats makes the art of quilting so wonderful; it's art and there are no quilt police! Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder after all.

I agree, beauty is definitely in each of our eyes. And can sometimes change according to mood, day, and life happenings! Great reply, Jan!

I do believe that I got my info in a class taught by Linda Tayler but she probably did not use the "U" word.
Isn't sight-unseen-computer-communication just fun and dandy!
No offense taken, Topstitch, honestly. Thank you for letting me know though.
