    A little quilted gift for my artist friend in Florida

    She makes pottery as you can see some of her creations and when my husband and I visited them in the summer I arrived with this little Stonehenge panel I quilted for her. She loved it and immediately put it on her dinning room table and put this basket with her pottery on top - so cute. I love panels and they look pretty good when you do a lot of quilting on them. I also made a little quilt for her doggie and I will try to find that picture and post it.

    That's a match made in heaven! The colors of your beautiful quilt really compliments her pottery and vice versa!

    The pottery and table topper look great together!! I bet she was thrilled to receive it, I would have been!

    Congratulations on your wonderful choice for your friend. You took the time to find something to complement her pottery (which in itself is outstanding).

    Spectacular work and colours.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Wow...that is really pretty.
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    great pattern and colors... and.. given the intended recipient, the quilting design ties it all together and brings it up a couple of notches past perfect! what a terrific eye you have.
    - Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
    - I've lost my mind somewhere in the heap of quilting scraps and motherboards.
