    I agree! Looking at the close up of the individual fabrics, I wouldn't have thought to pick a blue, but it is PERFECT!

    Looks great. Why add borders if you don't have to. Love your fabrics.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    The fabrics are wonderful. They make a simple pattern really shine and look complicated. Nice work.

    Fabulous! What a great pattern for a scrap quilt. You did a great job and whipped that out pretty fast.
