    Dee, that's amazing! You're an expert.
    Was it hard to decide where you applied your many quilting methods? Doesn't it make the piecing a feature when it's enhanced so beautifully with free motion work? I'm so impressed.

    Thank you, Mal. It was not really that hard deciding the design. I didn't look at it (hardly at all) before I put it on the machine.....then I looked at each row and decided.....Had to re-think only once when I started to do the same thing as the last row. I like to use the same color thread as the block.....not only will goofs not show up as easily but it seems to enhance rather than take away from the block. For some reason, I LOVE doing these quilts --- they're so different. And that surprises me -- when I first started I thought I only like the traditional type of quilting!!!! BUT, warning --- LOTS of SID!!!!!!

    Dee, I checked out your blog. You're a busy lady. The blog would take time to maintain and it's filled with your wonderful work which takes so much more time. And then, you've got time for fishing come summer. Well done - you're a great role model - I'm just starting out and hope to become good at quilting.
    Cheers, Mal from Cessnock AU

    Yes, nativetexan, I did. I figured out about the 2nd row, that it would be easier to do ALL the blacks and as much as I could of one color per row.....then those outer rows were done after I turned the quilt. I don't like turning, but in this case, I'd still be working on it --- to have to change the color 8 times per row was crazy.

    The colors seem to glow against the black. So beautiful.

    Your gorgeous quilt has confused me to no end. I finally did a quilt with a black background and I've been auditioning varigated threads to quilt it. I always wanted to do a quilt with varigated threads on black. Now I see your quilt quilted black on black and it is so beautiful and the quilting designs stand out so nice. Now I don't know which way to go. Great job -- I love it!
