    Before, after, and more after

    So I've been torturing myself with this quilt for a long time. And some of you have been along on the trip. Anyway, I've finally finished it, and am posting pictures of the whole progression: the first miserable looking top, then I added black strips which improved it, then I added orange squares and quilted it. I actually like it now, especially that I'm done with it!

    The bursts of orange really add a lot of life to it, and the black gave it a 3D effect. Kudoes. And yay for the finish. I know it feels great.

    What she said.

    The orange just brings the whole thing to life.

    Oh I do remember your quilt. When you added the shadowing it really made a big difference. And then your orange! Now the quilting and you have aced it. Glad you like it now.

    I remember when you first showed this. It turned out great, very modern. I like the way you quilted it.

    I like it also. I love the addition of the orange squares. Waked it up, and now it is finished. Very nice.
