    I call it a lot of work, but you were looking to name and I like the name you picked.

    looking for your input, what do you think?
    Pardon me, but this is much prettier than the one that sold for $70,000!

    OMG!!!! Fantastic, just fantastic work. I can't wait to get good so I can do one. Maybe I'll break my code and do a small one just to try it. (I have a personal rule not to make anything less than a bed size...but I might have to break it ;-) )

    I have to say, Your comments are overwhelming!!! Thanks to one and all, and you have motivated me even more!!! You know how you can think you might be doing something well, but not sure...then you get comments like these, and realize maybe you're better than you give yourself credit for! Which is what I am always telling my hubby who is a ski instructor and constantly improving his skill, but get's comments on how well he is doing...hmmmmm
    Thanks, ladies and gents...

    I know Merlin didn't print well! He is in the upper left corner of one of the squares...He has pearls stitched in a buttonhole stitch under him...I hope that helps!!!

    Here's his picture up close...He didn't print well, so I probably shouldn't have used him...

    I would call it Enchantment, since Merlin was an enchanter, not a magician

    I am really leaning towards "Victorian Enchantment"...but, I am questioning even leaving him in...I could print out a victorian lady on fabric and put her over him and stitch around with ribbon embroidery and no one would know...

    I like your idea of the Victorian Lady better. Do another one with Merlin in purples and golds.

    After much soul searching and debate with my hubby, I have decided, Merlin will disappear...King Arthur needs him right now! So I am going to fill in the space with a solid color and embroidery and embelish without him...but I do have in mind to do a King Arthur piece, as I have loved the story since a child...I will post new pictures as I make my way through this quilt...though I may still keep the name as Victorian Enchantment!
    Thanks for all your wonderful suggestions...I will keep you posted....
