    Another excellent quilt! I like the off-set strip. Again, lots of meaning to the symbols! You are truly a blessing to these young adults. I hope they stay true to their beliefs!

    I am in a group from our church and we made quilts for our seniors last year. Ours are not as fancy as only 3 of us had ever made quilts before. But the seniors loved them and we are doing it again this year. Your quilts are wonderful and it's nice to have them personalized like that.

    Beautiful quilt and young woman. This is a wonderful idea that I will share with our Church quilting guild.

    I'm a long-time sewer who recently started getting into quilting ... As far as "fancy", I look for patterns that can be constructed using strips the width of the fabric ("Strip easy" by Christiane Meurier is my go-to for inspiration). Stripping really saves on time and IMO makes the quilt look more complicated than it actually is. And I get so much out of the making ...
