    This is now ready for the binding, but thought I would share a picture. I call it "disappearing" because I didn't have enough contrast in my snow balls to really make them stand out. A lesson learned about contrast for me! LOL! I think it makes it look more like an Irish Chain. Several of the fabrics are Jo Morton, and the others were Old Sturbrige Village line ( I think the very first one) Now to make some matching pillow cases!

    This is a quilt that seemed to take forever! mainly because my long armer (friend) had it for such a long time. Wont go into that because my post would be deleted by admin. Thanks for taking a peek!

    You did great! I love it! I think low contrast looks great in quilts! It gives it an antique look! The quilting is also fantastic! Great job! :D :D ;-) :!:
