    Winding Ways, Healing Ways

    I made this quilt for a friend who is ill. Got the border fabric on sale, liked it so much I hunted down a couple yards of the green and a yard of the pink. I have the Accucut Winding Ways die which I had used before and thought it would be a good choice. The quilt went together well, but when I was all done I decided it was boring. I think I'm not a 'pastel person'. After a day or so, I decided maybe it wasn't boring, it was soothing. It's off to the recipient this week. Hope she likes it and it brings her some comfort.
    The die was expensive, but makes the curved piecing a snap. If you are condsidering making one of these, I would also recommend the book: "Winding Ways" by Nancy MacDonald
    http://www.amazon.com/Winding-Ways-Q...s=winding+ways
    The construction chapter is invaluable, and there's some interesting setting ideas.

    Lovely quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
