    Looks like an ordinary striped quilt, no?
    What you can't see is the quilting ... which was done in variegated thread ...
    Here's the back ...

    (mumble, mumble, the woman has no patience, mumble ....) Well I was just about to load my camera card into the computer to show y'all Krystyna's quilt, but she beat me to it. I was waiting for a sunny day to show it off to its best advantage -- and to-dah! today we finally have sun!

    But let me tell you about the quilt ... it's GORGEOUS!! The colors remind me of our trip to Hawaii; the blues and purples swirled with greens and a touch of bright yellow. The quilting looks like the ripples on the top of the ocean after a big wave crashed over the lava rocks in front of where we stayed. Now the strips ... she made some of the skinniest strips I've ever seen -- we're talking millimeters here. I don't know how she did it, but that's our Krystyna. There is A LOT of labor (and a lot of threadwork) in this little gem, and I'm proud to be the owner. Thanks, again, Krystyna.

    Oooo! Nancy, I would love it if you could send me a photo of the stitching on the front. It was so hard to capture without the right light. And there is never the right light in this apartment. Sorry to have jumped the gun.

    Krystyna did you hand quilt it? It's really pretty! I love the color of the binding! And the back is awesome!!
    Thanks for the encouragement by the way! I'll be back in April to do a doll swap! This month is really really busy for me! Not sure how much sewing I'll get done! Ladies on here have been helping me so much so it should be better next time!
    Love Ya Gals!

    Krystyna.....I am so encouraged by the back work. LOL. I am learning how to quilt on my machine. Doing the meandering seems easy at first but it can be tricky. I got hung up on trying so hard not to cross over a line. My quilt teacher told all of us.....why can't you cross over a line?????? Where is it written that you can't do that.???? So I am practicing the meandering like you. I love the colors of your quilt. Of course those are my colors anyways. LOL.

    GirlLFJ - No, that was free motion quilting. I'm still learning. Looking forward to your return. In the meanwhile, practice, practice, practice!

    UrGodsChild2: nice pinwheels, super background choice and love the heart FMQ!
    Krystyna: Your DQ color choices are amazing! My first thought was water and then coolness.
    Quiltymom: Love the dk. blue pinwheel, the border frames it beautifully.
    978 Gray: Do you give lessons on the perfect 1/4 inch seems? I can't wait till I grow up and my strips are that perfect!
    Have enjoyed this months quilt show!
