    I finally got this quilt done. Since it is for my bed, it kept getting pushed back for quilts I had to get done. I also made a blind to match, but don't have a non blurry picture of it. I have a hard time with the digital camera---too light weight. When I had it laid out, I asked my nephew what he thought. He said it looks psychedelic. I guess I accomplished getting the affect I was looking for-- at least to him. Edit: Oops--the first one is the back.

    The back of my quilt.

    Great job. So colorful. It was well worth the wait.

    I agree with your nephew, it does look psychedelic. But that is a good thing. :D

    Love the back, too. You will enjoy it on your bed this winter. :D

    Great quilt. It really does look psychedelic. Your colors are wonderful. The quilt backing is "groovy" too.

    Thank you everyone. I appreciate all of your comments and compliments. I am glad that you can get the feel for the retro I was going for. I will probably have the other side up part of the time.

    esqmommy--Did you enjoy doing the blocks? I really like doing them.

    Diana--I bet you will be doing curves before you know it!!

    I love the retro look, and yep, it's reversible, the back is just as "groovy" as the front. Well done, you should be really proud of it.

    It's brilliant a double sided quilt Yeah haaaa, love your fabrics too - I had a bash at curves I found them easier than I imagined.

    Thank you. I appreciate your compliments.

    I used the Kaye Woods method for the curves. She makes it easier I think. I collected fabrics for about 1 1/2 years. My nephew's wife found out from her mom what I was doing and gave me enough fabrics to do the quilt (plus some) for Christmas in 2008.
