    This quilt was started from a jelly roll kit. Two of us bought it with the pattern. I made mine up with a black background, and only a lap size. Chris made hers with muslin, a king size, not done yet. ha My camera either is too dark, or with the flash, washes out the color, but here it is. Chris quilted it, she has a long arm and does all of mine. I really like mine, did two with an Amish feeling this year.

    The whole top, laying on my bed, dark sorry.

    Here are two more pics. One of the corner, and the other of the neat quilting. Showing a butterfly and a bloom. Chris did a good job, used variegated thread too, shows really well on the black.

    The neat quilting.

    Wow, that is really pretty! I love how the black makes the colors pop! And she did a great job on the quilting. Tell her to hurry up and finish hers!

    Beautiful! I shy away from using black in my quilts but when I see something like this I really wonder why!
