    I've never done a challenge. This is for our LQS and the winner gets to choose the charity it goes to. It was fun to do. Thanks for looking!

    It's a really good charity!
    It takes in quilts that think they will be lonely in the houses they are made in. This place gives them a GREAT home and lots of love :) :) :)

    The thread is orange/tan/brown/ Thank you! I love using the varigated thread. It's alittle more forgiving! :oops:

    Pay no attention to Terri, she's just a quilt-hog! That one definitely needs to come to the Lollipop Cat and Quilt Sanctuary!

    I love, love love the colors and the border fabric! Great job!

    I like that! The colors are great and I like the way the colors blend and change.

    Thanks for posting it.

    pantos are great.

    the quilters rule site has some great templates to make feathers, scrolls, etc.

    i'm big on not reinventing the wheel when there's a handy dandy tool on the market to meet your need. this leaves you time to do more designing :D

    That is really sharp! I just love it - especially your quilting on it - I'm new in this forum but am loving it - did you long arm it? I'm amazed by longarm machines - I just bought a frame and am now looking in to getting a longer neck to go on it...
