    Life is a dance

    I just finished my first of two quilts I'm making for Christmas gifts (and I sandwiched and basted the other this morning). This quilt is for my ballroom dance coach and his family. He has done so much for me this year and I wanted to give back to him so of course I would make him a quilt. Even though it is simple I'm very happy with how it came out.

    Your colors and prints make it a very beautiful quilt.

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

    It's beautiful. Simplicity speaks volumes when it's the right simplicity. I love how it all came together.

    Maybe I need to try this pattern. It doesn't look simple to me! It's really beautiful. You did a fantastic job.
