    Love it! I, too, like lighthouses. One of these days I want to do a Storm at Sea with a lighthouse in one corner.

    Thats how a lot of my quilts are born also, first I love the fabric then I decided what to do with it. But that being said. I think you are very creative and talented and I love the work you do. Anyone would be proud to have one of your original quilts. Great job. I'm sure it will be Well loved and showed by the couple your sending it to.

    It turned out great and I'm glad you left the fabric in big enough pieces to be able to see the theme!
