    Hi, I'm sort of new here. This is a quilt I made for a grand-niece for X-Mas. The original design is by Gwen Brown & in Fons & Porter's winter 2008 magazine. I adapted the colors to what I was able to purchase. It was hand quilted in sections then sewn together. Hope it passes muster!

    I've never really known what muster is, but I think you passed with flying colors! (Edit to say, wasn't the flying colors comment appropriate for this quilt, heehee?)

    Your quilt is beautiful! :thumbup: Your grandniece will love it!

    Jan, that is fabulous! I am not a "brights" person when it comes to fabric but I love the way the colors just seem to glow. And your hand quilting is beautiful!! I'm drawn to all things Celtic and seeing your quilting makes me smile. Your grand-neice is a lucky girl!

    Thank-you all for your wonderful words. I think the hardest part was which colors to use! I even learned how to draw celtic knots in the process!!!
