    Eureka!

    I made this quilt was for my niece. I really loved it when it was finished but it was a bear to make. The pattern was quite appropriately named Eureka.

    I just love the colors you chose to make your Eureka quilt in. It really sings. What a beauty.

    It's gorgeous! I have that pattern and fabrics in green and red I intend to make for a Christmas bed quilt. I am a little too intimidated to begin. Have had it for a few years now....

    What a stunning quilt...it looks like a challenging project but so worth it in the end. Your colors are marvelous and really define the quilt pattern. Great job.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.
