    I think they're beautiful. You will too once you've had time to step back from them for a few days!

    I think they are great. We have that one project we hate because it gave us so much trouble. Mine went to my DD and she LOVES it. I call it the quilt from H***

    I think they are lovely and would look really nice on my table here in the desert. I have quail all over my property.

    I like how they turned out, but I can certainly understand your frustration about them, and then not liking them. I am sure they will be appreciated soemwhere! :lol:

    They look amazing. Maybe you could put them in a drawer for a couple of weeks until you forget (well, simmer down) the trouble you've had with them and see them in a different light. They are wonderful.

    Well I put them away in a closet where they aren't in site. The last one did come out much better than the first. The bias binding just gave me fits on the first one.

    Thanks so much for the encouragement girls. Have a great sewing day.

    You certainly put a great deal of work into the quilting of them - my goodness, what detail.
