    I made this quilt in a class several years ago. I designed the picture myself and I wanted the basket handle and bottom corners of the basket to be curved, but the teacher said I couldn't use HST, I had to use just squares. Well, when I got home, I made HST and used them in the handle and basket and learned a good lesson that has served me well in teaching. There are NO rules!! When I teach, I will make suggestions, teach techniques, and help with any problems, but as far as fabric choices and design, I tell my students " It's YOUR quilt, you can do what you want!!!" LOL

    That's gorgeous. I love the watercolor method. Glad you didn't listen to the teacher. I think the few HST's make it really stand out.

    I really love the watercolor quilts. I have had it in the back of my mind to make one for some time now.
    Yours is really beautiful. I am glad you made it the wa you wanted to. After all she can't tell you not to use creativity. How odd!

    That is so pretty. I love it. It is always so much more satisfying when you do what you want to do. Makes your quilt "yours". Wonderful job!
