    My friend selected the pattern and bought fabric for a quilt, since I had told her I would make one if she bought the fabric. I sort of thought she would want to see pictures along the way or something, but she wants to wait and be surprised by the final result.

    Fine...but I find that I don't really like this quilt. I am going to do just what she requested, but I know people have different reactions to quilts, fabrics, patterns, etc., and I would feel much better if someone out there told me this quilt really looks okay.

    I have noticed a pattern in me that I tend not to like a quilt I am working on, but by the time I am finished, I really like it. I hope that is the case with this.

    I am obviously not finished, just putting the borders on my design wall, trying to convince myself that I like it and that my friend will too.

    You may just not be used to the high contrast. It is very pretty and the light colors make the butterflies float!

    Something happens to a quilt when you quilt it, it seems to blend the whole thing together.

    The fabrics are her choosing so you know she will like that. I think we all worry too much.

    Again, thanks. I am sure I will like it by the time I finish, but I am glad to hear it looks okay now!
