    I love your quilt! My daughter just came in and saw your avitar. Of course, she picked out your horse book for me to make her a quilt. I haven't started yet since I have a couple ahead of hers, but she was really wowed to know it is really you! The designer of her horse book! She knows a celebrity!

    I am just going through my orange period now. Wonder how that happens? Guess I am a bit behind you. Wonder what the next color will be that latches on to us?

    This is one very cool quilt. I thought I was going to see somthing turtle-ish what a surprise. I love goldfish. Have three ten 11 yr old, hand size fish that I adopted about one year ago when the owners didn't want them any more. How sad. I love them and your quilt gives me a happy feeling. If I ever come across material similar to yours I will have to create something to honor my three. Your quilt is great!
    Peace :D

    The variegated thread in the quilting is the icing on the beautiful cake. Lovely wallhanging. I too love orange.
