    I agree. It is BEAUTIFUL. thanks for sharing. I appreciated your sentiment in your title. That's what I thought about the quilt I made for my daughter's wedding, however, we finally decided to make it a gift from all her family, so that spread the cost a bit!
    God Bless,

    It's a beauty. I had a chance to buy some of that same fabric but didn't have a clue what I would make with it. Just really liked it. Wish I had bought it now. LOL Thank you for sharing your masterpiece.

    Stunning. Your color placement on the pieced blocks makes them glow!

    Beautiful job. I can see you were inspired by Jinny Beyer's Moonglow quilt.
    http://www.jinnybeyer.com/ax_commerc...C710D36E84D4AE

    Off setting the "glow" blocks with the peacock fabrics was an ingenious use of that gorgous fabric. I really love the border print you selected too. Is that also a Jinny Beyer line?
