    Kristy's Dream/Kelly's Nightmare

    I have been working on this top since late 2012. It has been a love/hate/like relationship. Saw the quilt here: http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/02/...eam-quilt.html Absolutely loved it so I ordered the layer cake. Didn't realize the layer cake came in two different colorways and got the wrong colorway. While it is called Kristy's Dream, I lovingly refer to it as Kelly's Nightmare.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I love your play on the name with this quilt and I rather like it in this colorway. Although I don't know what the other one looked like. This one is nice that it is in neutrals so it would make a great guy quilt and it would definitely make a very nice gift to anyone.

    very pretty design
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I saw through the link this quilt is labeled "Ambitious" & I think you did a great job! It's a beautiful quilt & well worth the finish.
