    Well...after I uncrossed my eyes...lol! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Looks like great craftsmanship...just not my kind of fabric. Great job! BTW that is fabric from Connecting Threads. What is surprising is that they "group" all of their fabrics into coordinated groups. Apparently your friend is a free spirit!

    I really like it. Didn't think it would really come good, but you came up with a really nice pattern. Lovely

    Made me chuckle. Strangely enough I like those fabrics. Cheese and cracker thing was brilliant too.

    This certainly looks like the Hidden Wells pattern to me. There is a group on yahoo doing that pattern, with tutorials and all that. It's a great pattern!

    That had to be a true work of love for your friend. I would never have been able to do anything with those awful fabrics, but you are an artist. You came up with a winner!!! YOU GO GIRL !!!
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    The layout and the workmanship are beautiful and you did a great job of using the fabrics that you were presented with. It sure looks MUCH better than I expected when I saw the selection of fabrics.....you made the most of them. Good Job!

    Very inspiring indeed!
    I bought this fabric, which in reality did not look at all the way it looked in the catalogue. For the heck of me, I can't think of anything to do with it. (I considered dying it.) Maybe I can send it to you?

    I think you did a beautiful job with the fabric you were given. Although I didn't really care for the fabric either, I think the quilt looks pretty good. Your work is gorgeous and I love the pattern. Two thumbs up!
