    I embroidered these panels over 20 years ago and always wanted to make a quilt for my bed. I finally found the courage and fabric to get it done. It's my first real serious quilt, I'm no professional by any means so please be gentle.

    I really enjoy looking at quilts that use embroidery, and hope to make one someday. You did such a nice job, and now you've got one under your belt!

    Baby steps....or should I say Baby Quilts. I saw a pattern for 3D Pinwheels, I'm including a picture. I think I'd like to try a quilt with this design. I used some scraps from "my" quilt to make a trial block.

    Love the pinwheel look. Love your finished quilt. The color of the sashing and corner stones really set it off.

    Well if you took you twenty years to finish it, I must say it was worth the wait.

    WOW! Your quilt is beautiful. Since you're making a "baby" quilt, it should only take you, what, 10 years?

    Congratulations of the finish of a very nice quilt. It looks great on your bed. Doesn't it feel good to get it done?
    I also like the nice quilt project you have in mind to do. Ver interesting effect it makes when the block is finished.
