    JenniePenny's Generous Gift!

    This is the top that Jenny sent me. This is only the second one that Ihave quilted myself and I think it turned out okay. I had some trouble with the spacing and I used a medium tan thread that Ithought would stand out on the colored blocks, but it stood out more on the neutral ones and for the life of me I can't figure out why, but overall I am pretty pleased with it. I hope that Jenny approves!

    Oh my dear girl, it looks Wonderful!! You have excellent quilting abilities, and have turned something that did not appeal to me into a beautiful piece. The quilt has a very soothing and serene look. Thank you so much for showing it.

    I am so glad you approve, I was worried. I am putting the binding on today... would it be tacky to donate it and then bid on it myself...lol

    No need to have worried. I had given with no restrictions or requirements. Looks like we both got to be creative.

    Oooh I especially like the quilting in the white border. Feathers but not. Nicely done!

    Very pretty! Love the design and the quilting is great!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Very nice. I like the way you do your feathers, rather than overlapping threads. Will have to try that.

    It looks lovely. And the thread stood out more on the light fabric because it's darker than the fabric. It came out beautiful.

    But it was lighter than the darker fabrics but still blended in...that's what has me puzzled?

    I don't think there is any doubt that she will like it very much. I think your work is lovely.

    Only my second quilt top, I have done some smaller things and it sure seems like a thousand practice sandwiches! I can do feathers, but I still can't meander worth a hoot!...sigh
