    Last one, I promise: Birds of Paradise

    You've all been so kind with your comments about my quilts. Thank you!!! Here's the last one, I promise.
    I call it Birds of Paradise and is for my best friend when she retires (soon, yeah!). It's based on a quilt called "Father's Whistle" by a Korean quilter. It was my first and only try at curved seams. Again, hand pieced and quilted. It took 9 months to finish.
    I hope you like it.

    Oh Laura, your quilts are absolutely beautiful! Please don't let this be your last one. I could look are yours every day. Color has always been a struggle for me in quilts & your color combinations are just fantastic. They are so pleasing to my eye & easy to gaze upon. Thank you so much for posting your beauties for us.

    P.S. I don't think we've seen the one on the ground with the triangles....can we see it...please.

    Great work for a first try-you are braver than I :-) This quilt is terrific. Great choice of colors, love the fade from dark to light. Your BF will love and cherish this.

    Oooh, Osewme, too kind! The one on the ground is called "Forest in Winter". I'll post it now. I just don't want to be hogging the site. I hope everyone will forgive me if I seem to be doing so.

    Wow, another beauty. Your mastery of color and value is amazing. And all your work appears to be hand pieced and hand quilted. I hope to see MANY posts from you featuring your extraordinary quilts and feel free to put in several pics of the same quilt in a post, with closeups so we can marvel at your creations even more.

    That’s a gorgeous quilt! Your friend will love it. I really like the way you’ve done the colors from light to dark. And nice work on those curved seams.

    Beautiful quilt! It has great movement. It would be a shame if that is your last share. You make some very interesting quilts. Feel free to share away. And, I will look forward to enjoying your talent.
