    yesterday I posted a photo of my tradewinds ..Thanks all for all the kind things you said..I'm still not really happy with it but think it will make a good back...so I'm putting it on the back of my stack and whack that I call Calcutta...cause it has a spot I don't like that I call the black hole..Like it so much that I bought some more of that fabric with a yellow background..a bigger piece so it doesn't have a hole ...

    usually I am not a fan of stack and whack, but your quilt is captivating! I love it! I wouldn't change a thing.

    I'm with the others, I think it's very striking and I like the "black hole"!
