    Desert Sky

    This was my first attempt at FPP and once I got my head around it all I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. Many thanks to those who took the time to answer my questions about this process helping me understand what i had to do.

    So pretty! Paper piecing is not my thing, but you have created a masterpiece. It would never be that pretty if I attempted it, I promise!
    I made it to the mtns and love every minute of it!

    Spectacular quilt. I appreciate the first picture because it shows your wonderful color choices that work so well together. I like your second picture because it showcases a beautiful quilt in a perfect place. I am glad you enjoyed the process. I am another one who likes paper piecing.

    How lovely! I adore Judy Niemeyer/Quiltwork patterns. You did a fabulous job on this and the straight line quilting is very effective. It looks fabulous in your dining area.
