    Thanks for you comment! I actually think it's kinda funny. People who don't quilt don't know what it means and i have to explain to them that it's pre-printed fabric. I've been getting all kinds of accolades about my applique abilities on my facebook page and I want you quilters to know right up front it's pre-printed!!!

    the quilt is beautiful! not a thing of negativity---cheating---at all

    Thanks! I would have never guessed it would turn out this nice. This is one case where the quilting made the quilt. It's a very old and inexpensive fabric but it's very hard to tell even in person that it's a cheater quilt!

    It's not a "cheater", it's a BEAUTIFUL "wholecloth"!

    that is the best looking cheater cloth I've ever seen. Love your quilting on it. I think she should share it with you.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!
