    My sister had intended to hand quilt it but life got in the way, so I offered to finish it. I think she'll be happy, too!

    It is just gorgeous and the first "cheater" I have ever seen quilted. You have the quilt sandwich.. so what is the cheating about ? I wouldn't want to give it back either.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    Wow!! I have to say that when I saw the fabric I thought it was ... well ... ugly. but WOW!! You've made a silk purse out of a sows ear!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    the quilt is beautiful! not a thing of negativity---cheating---at all


    Ck I agree with you! I dislike the word cheater as well, makes it sound like your doing something wrong by using it. Now on to the quilt. It is nothing sort of stunning! If I could of guessed a whole piece of yardage could of come out looking like that, I would of had my antenna's out looking for just the right piece to have quilted. Your work is amazing and I sure wouldn't want to give it up either. Maybe you can flip a coin for it. If you lose you've lost nothing but if you win well just lets say you'd be truly blessed. Great Job both of you!

    Your quilting is spectacular, Linda. I can understand how you would hate to part with it.

    OMG your quilting is absolutely stunning. I only quilt like that in my dreams. Did you use long arm or DSM, is it all freehand? I love it!!!!!!!!
