    I've made a small quilt project (a coaster) by hand. But the moment I got the book "Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Projects", I fell in love with this design and have been dying to make it. Got the fabrics bundle from Purl and started gathering other necessary fabrics. I started working on the quilt in November last year and now it is finally finished! I am so so so excited about it ... the finished quilt is simply gorgeous! Of course there are some imperfections of a new quilter, but despite all that, I LOVE it!

    For more photos and details, please go to my blog. Thanks for looking.

    I tried to get to your blog, but it wasn't working.
    After tweaking the website, I got it.

    Here is it.....

    Nice job Agnes!! I don't think I've ever seen a color wheel done on a quilt...but mind you I haven't been quilting all that long myself. You can pat yourself on the back!! Isn't it nice to get them finished & actually use them??

    Gorgeous! Don't you just love that book? I made the Color Wheel quilt too, but in a smaller version. Your quilting is spectacular!

    Thank you all so much for your kind comments! Before making this full-size quilt, I hand quilted a coaster following a chinese craft book, so I had some idea how it works. But of course, a full-size quilt is a lot different.
    I have tons of leftovers from the Purl fabric kit for this quilt, so I think I'm going to make lots of coasters, puzzle balls and other little stuffs! LOL!
    However, I already had my eye on another full-size quilt. I came across the "Dear Jane Quilt" site and I fell in love immediately! But this may not come true in a long while as I think I need to collect quite some fabrics before I can start. :D
