    I liked it better before I quilted it. Maybe I just got sick of looking at it. I had a few issues and might have done something different in the sashing..................like FEATHERS! This quilt had many firsts for me.
    1st mitred corder
    1st quilt on point (bias)
    1st attemt at swags
    1st machine embroidery/applique
    1st attemt at beadboard border design

    geez Patrice you beat me to it! I agree you need to forget about this awful experience and get rid of it.

    For a whole bunch of firsts- you did an awesome job! Now, what did you learn from this experiment? Like, maybe you need to make another for me since Patrice is getting the experimantal model? j/k hope you decide to display it someplace- it's gorgeous and needs to be seen.

    You are right, Patrice. I need to get rid of the memory of this horrible experience :twisted: :roll: :lol: but not the lessons learned. I do have to agree that it looks pretty good if you don't examine it up close.
    Thank you for the nice words.

    Jackie,
    It's really a lovely quilt. Why, oh why, are we never happy with our own work? You've done a wonderful job and look at all you've learned! Put it away (from Patrice) and after a month pull it out again. You'll fall in love with it all over again. I will guarantee it! Uh, I could safe guard if for you! :lol: No charge!

    Wowsers! It is a beautiful quilt! And you get to keep all the lessons you learned! I don't know how you are going to be able to part with it after all that work! There are just too many people willing to take it off your hands! :lol:
    I solve the problem of getting sick of a quilt by having many of them going at the same time, which is why it is so difficult to get ONE finished! :?

    I think it's remarkable--but then again, I think EVERYTHING you do is remarkable! Only you will see the mistakes, and pretty soon even you won't see them! Great job, Jackie!

    Another great quilt from Jackie. Love it and if you decide not to send it to Patrice, you can send it to Maine and I will take care of it.

    I can see how you may have gotten sick of those pebbles but dang they sure look good on the quilt!
    I'll show you one of mine pretty soon then you can say "well I'm definately better than her" ROFL
    I agree with everybody that it is really beautiful, love the flowers.
