    Cactus Wreath Quilt

    My sister, who is not a sewer but a beautiful musician, thought this pattern was interesting. I decided to make it for her. I hope I did it justice. Enjoy. Thank you for looking.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    It really is beautiful. I love the way the white just makes the rest of the design stand out. I think you did more than justice to the pattern and your sis will love it. I know I would. Way to go!!!
