    I made this a couple of years ago as a Block of The Month from my LQS. Someone had said before something about feeling apprehensive about cutting new fabric and getting started on a project. That is exactly how I felt when I received this beautiful box of fabrics! I felt very intimidated- I was afraid mine wouldn't turn out as nicely as the one in the LQS. However, I am pleased with the results and I still love this wallhanging today! My sister said I shouldn't hang it in the stairway because noone would see it- as opposed to the livingroom- but I love it where it is. Since then- I have made my Mom a modiified one to fit her space. I'll post that soon. Thanks for looking!

    I love your quilt. You are right, the fabric was ALMOST too pretty to cut but now it is prettier.

    That is stunning! Just think, a lot of people just don't get why we do what we do. "Why on earth do you buy fabric just to cut it up and sew it back together?", I am sure all of ya have heard this at one time or another. Right? Well, if we didn't do that we couldn't end up with beautiful quilts like this one here. So "Why not?" is what I tell them.
