    Love them all - the second one is my fav. Love the black in it, it really makes the rest pop out.

    Lovely stuff...I happen to enjoy the binding process. It really feels like "finished!" as I do it.

    You do a great job with the machine sewn binding. I use the same method -- back to front -- but mine never looks as good as yours does. Beautiful flowered fabric -- love that one. Thanks for sharing

    Wow! That's six so far...you sure are binding up a storm. Each of your quilts are beautiful. Do they all have homes or are they waiting to be adopted? Thanks for sharing.

    Please let us know what the name of the first pattern is, I can't figure it out. Looks like it would be so quick to put together.
    Love all your quilts.

    Love, love the first one -- You just can't go wrong with batiks, can you. The other two are so bright and cheerful, and such happy quilts.

    All your quilts are pretty and I like the amount of quilting you did on each. Of course, your bindings are the perfect finishing touch. Like some of the others, I would like to know the name of the first pattern. I've figured out how to piece it, but it would be nice to have instructions and yardage. You've really inspired us :>)
