    Frazzled and Tattered but Finished at Last

    No, not me. This is the name of my quilt. It was made for a guild challenge and I won "Viewer's Choice". It had to be scrappy, have four quilt blocks in it and have 60% of the gold fat quarter given to us. It was a fun quilt to work on. I seem to enjoy the challenge of making something different instead of following a pattern. I really need to get back to actually learning basic quilting methods - well, maybe some day. I hope you enjoy looking.

    Oh, I wouldn't worry about pulling back into the quilting world, you haven't left it. The spirit and art behind this quilt should be allowed to continue. It is wonderfully joyous. How many of us would just love to reach this point of freedom of expression.

    Your quilt is fun. I love all the quilting tools you added including the cat. I can't quilt without my cats.

    Bravo!! Excellent quilt!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    The consensus seems to be ... "Don't change a thing!!" You have a fantastic style and your execution seems fine to me. We can all work a pattern but you are just flying out of the box. Just excellent!
