    You did a good job in picking out a pattern for the fabrics you were given. You definitely made lemonade from the lemons you were given. Give yourself credit and a big pat on the back,

    Well I would have made a 2 color quilt , added a third color every here and there as a modern spot of color and then used the other 2 colors in a double binding, but I hope she likes what you did. You certainly gave it great effort.

    Someone will love it. You did a good job with the fabric you had to work with. By the way, I've seen uglier and ugliest!!

    You HAVE made a silk purse out of a sow's ear! I think you have done a marvelous job with what you had to work with. Those who don't make habit out of putting fabric together have no idea of how challenging it actually is to come out with a "thing of beauty and a joy forever." Just BTW, I have seen far uglier quilts. Some of the ones you see at county fairs make me wonder how anyone could have spent good money for the fabric - surely wasted - in them.

    You did a good job with what you had.....Bravo!! I am sure she is gonna love it.

    Now to go rest my eyes, I think they started vibrating from the pattern. Kinda like when you look at one of those black and white optical illusion pictures.

    It is a quilt and will keep someone warm and cozy. All that really matters isn't it? It is nice actually.

    If you use the galloping horse rule it is awesome. Up real close maybe not so much. I like the pattern though.

    I love the pattern you picked to work with. I really think you made the fabric work for you. So two thumps up on rising to the challenge. Have you thought of what you will send back to your friend. Of course as a thank you for creating this suprise moment in your life. LOL (:wink

    Well, I would have to say it would not be my favorite quilt but you did a great job with what you had. You picked the right pattern and used the fabrics in the right places. Be proud of what you did. Somebody will love that quilt!!

    I don't think this quilt is so bad as others think. I love the pattern. I would cover up under this quilt!. You are a very good quilt maker. Barny
