    This one is going off to Naples, Italy tomorrow, for our dear friend, Zeno.

    The kaleidoscopes remind me of the ancient tiles you can see at Herculaneum or Vesuvius or elsewhere throughout southern Italy, old or new.

    The colors remind me of the Mediterranean there. And the sky. And the green of the gardens.

    What a coincidence!!! I used this same fabric combined with others for my first OBW. I made a lap quilt for my mother-in-law.

    Oh my goodness, that fabric would have gone into my "too beautiful to cut" pile. But, you've proved that beautiful fabric makes a beautiful quilt.

    I never cease to be fascinated by how different the same fabric can look elsewhere or how different the same pattern can look when different fabric is used. Both quilts are lovely.
