    You did an amazing job of getting everything to line up! Wow! It looks like you now have a warm, comfy place to work.

    Thanks, they do help keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The fron of the room faces East so in the summer I keep the quilts pulled to keep the sun out, have the other ones open in the sun get to the west side. In the winter I leave the open until late afternoon and close the for the night.

    The fabrics I used were my scraps from several project I had made over the years. They are all colors I love.

    I like the look of your quilting stitches. I'm getting ready to make a shower curtain and think I will borrow this idea.
