    Smile Excited about this one ~

    I just recently got this back from my LAQ who always does a fantastic job. It is Monet's Wedding Ring pattern from the book Scraps by Judy Martin. It was a long process to finish it as life just gets in the way sometimes, but it was worth the wait. The binding fabric was some purchased several years ago to make a Stack n Whack but it seemed destined to be the binding for this quilt instead.

    That is one beautiful quilt and your LAQ did a fantastic job for you.

    That pattern is awesome . . . and your choice of fabrics make that one superb quilt! For people leery of curved piecing (me in particular) this quilt is a perfect alternative. Thank you for sharing.

    And, you definitely should be proud. It came out very beautiful. Lots of interest with all the scrappiness of it. And, your quilter did a wonderful job with complimenting all your hard work.

    Carol, I can certainly see why you are excited...it finished up beautifully and your longarmer did a fantastic job. Great pattern and so many pieces...I’m sure it was a labor of love and so worth it.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Oh, so beautiful. I like the Monet-look on an old beloved pattern. I think your color choice is perfect. It is just a wonderful finish. The quilting is lovely as well.
