    I am soo glad that you machine quilt! :D My girlfriends husband once made the mistake of syaing something about it not being a real quilt unless it's done by hand. Poor guy will never open his mouth again. She's probably sewn it shut by now. :!:

    Too bad I can't send you the quilt I made my sister in law last year for Christmas - she did not like it - I could tell by her reaction - I did not like it - I do not like green/purple - SO I now have it and do not know what to do with it!! I was NOT offended by her not liking it - - - I completely understood... :)

    I don't like purple either, but I sure do like this quilt - it is very pretty and would look wonderful anywhere - a far better first quilt than mine - I just asked my husband this morning if he still likes my first one - after about 25 or more others - he said, "Yes, it's your first one."!!! He's so wonderful!! We'll keep it forever - it is on our bed and we use it all the time!!

    Your quilt is awesome. I love the pattern and the color combination. I am looking forward to seeing future quilts.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I think it reminds me of Amish colors. I think you did a fabulous job!

    FIRST quilt? What a knock-out! It is beautiful! If your first one is this good, can't wait to see what follows...

    Looks great! Not sure I would have put those colors together! interesting! Question tho.. how did you go about making each block as far a cutting the required squares to assemble? I mean, if I were doing 12 of the same block I'd cut X amount of each color square adn then assemble them into the pattern. But with 12 DIFFERENT block patterns...all with diff size sqs, some with flying geese and that dresden plate.......how'd you make that happen without going nuts!?!?!
