    the quilt is striking with all of those pretty colors. I would think you need to ask a pretty penny as to the time that went in. Selling is a matter of luck to a degree, don't be disappointed. Your quilt is very nice, many would love to have it, but even less could afford a handquilted quilt and some are just not willing to pay. However, it's one quilt so all you need is one buyer. Hey if it doesn't sell you are the proud owner of a very lovely quilt. Grace

    I hope you sell this beauty, but I wouldn't be disappointed either if it didn't sell!

    I love your quilt. Was it hard hand quilting on batik, sine the weave is so tight?

    This is incredible! I have a recently started UFO with a lot of pieces cut for a quilt, and if I could post mine right now you might think I was stealing your inspiration! I've started a different quilt and the teal and purple pieces can't be laid out to take a picture with the other in the way, so the best I could do was dump them out on the floor and spread them out a little so you can see the general idea of the fabrics.

    My purples are mostly darker and have quite a bit of blue, green and aqua in addition to the teal. I've had most of these fabrics around for a long time and finally decided to put them together as a variation of the jelly roll race. What I have so far is the 42" long strips all sewn together with the white squares between them. After I got that far I realized that I could double the size of it if I made a corresponding row of white between the colored rows. Some of the delay was caused by having to go out and find more of the white fabric, which luckily was still available. And then I wanted it even bigger, so I bought several more fabrics in the color range. It was a little quilt idea that grew and grew, so that eventually it will be at least a queen size.

    I have to say I love yours because it's so much like my own plan. Great minds think alike?

    I can assure you mine will not be hand quilted, and I promise I won't copy your bubble idea, even though it's wonderful on this - a great counterpoint to the linear piecing.

    Bubbles were the pefect choice for this rectangular quilt. It is beautiful, by the way.

    The colors and the bubbles are gorgeous. You did a great job on this one. I think I'd keep it if I were you.

    I used the moda bake shop pattern "easy bricks" but had to alter it to work for my strip size. I dont mind if u use "bubbles" Happy quilting!

    The piecing itself went fast but I spent alot of time with the placement of the colors to get the look I wanted and the handquilting took a loooong time so overall I was a year with it but I did take breaks
