    I fell in love with the Stonehenge collection when I saw it and now I see why. Beautiful quilt!

Was the pattern such that one would have to make adjustments?
    And it's a lovely quilt. Good work and nice quilting.
    If you look closely at the quilt top, the pattern had the nine patches at the top and bottom of the quilt trimmed to fit the centre, I didn't like the look of chopped off squares so added the strip to either side to make the centre fit the top and bottom features. I also don't buy a lot of kits and this was the first one that I wasn't 100% happy with. I was lucky that there was enough fabric in the kit that I could make the adjustments.

    Brenda I quilted this one myself, I wanted it to be a very personal gift. I quilt on a Pfaff Expressions 3.0 and this is done edge to edge style, but on a sit down machine not on a frame

    Stunning! I have that pattern, but not the kit. Was planning on doing it all in batiks.
    To QUILT is human.
    To FINISH is divine.
