    okay, i've been jabbering about hating this quilt. here's why: it's a first attempt at SO MANY points without sashing. it's my first feathers. it's my first stipples. the colors are so muddy they look like i chose them in a hole in the ground. i made it for my dsister's birthday and that's long gone. i chose the pattern for sentimental reasons, "sister's choice", and i never liked it.

    after years of quilting and loving my own work, i hate this one. i do fine with other kinds of quilting designs, points, etc. but of course i chose my own colors. she likes dull colors, soooo.!

    so here it is. have pity and don't be too harsh. i shouldn't have tried so many 'news' on the same project. live and sometimes learn.

    the thread was poly variegated. yellow - white on the back and i tried to match the front colors. you can see that the points won.

    well, my dear, that's some of the best lookin' mud i've seen in a month of sundays.

    you can always adopt me as your new sister and send it my way. there's plenty of time until my next birthday.

    Butterflywing,
    I think you did a good job, on this quilt. We all have to start some where, that's how we learn. You might not like it, but I do!! :D I am sure you will find just the right person, to give it too. Thanks for sharing.
    Sulabug,
    Cheryl
    :D :D :D
