    I just love circles. Did you use the Accu Cut drunkards path die to cut this out? It's really gorgeous.

    Love it...there is also a way to do this with no curves. Just put the circle material on top of the square - you can than do raw edge or applique. They cut it in half both ways. Then mix and match and sew. So easy. I made one for my brother and love it. I did raw edge but used 606 spray and frey check on the edges. Came out awesome.

    Lovely quilt. Looks like lots of quilting to me. You did a great job.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    I am so a beginner quilter (yes, I've quilted for years -- I just don't advance very far) but I've always found curves really easy to do. If you just pin the devil out of them & then go slow, they go together quite nicely. I actually find them fun to do. And if my work ended up looking even half as fabulous as this beauty, I'd be "curving" 24/7. Thanks for showing this little glowing gem to us! I know your friend will love, love, love it!

    It is very beautiful. I love the texture. I bet you can now sew curves while blindfolded with one hand tied behind your back!

    This is beautiful. I love to hand quilt. Most all of my quilts are hand pieced and hand quilted. Some of the machine quilting just takes away from the designs of the quilt fabric. I have seen some quilts that you couldn't even see the pieces of the quilt. Personally, I prefer hand quilted any day. Beautiful job! ~~Ann~~

    Love your quilt and the fringe idea. Haven't tried curves and been quilting for about 6 years. It is very scary for me.
