    Your quilt is so beautiful - I could kick myself for not having participated in this swap.
    Did you applique the blocks - they really add a traditional edge to the quilt.
    I'd feel exactly the same as you - such a treasure to own - made with love from your friends here on the board.
    Enjoy :wink:

    *Jumps up and down* I see my block!!! *dances* That is simply too stunning for words! I cannot believe how beautiful that turned out to be! I still haven't figured out what to do with mine...they're sitting on my table not speaking to me!

    I simply cannot express how beautiful that quilt turned out to be! GREAT JOB!

    I forgot to tell you that those are pansies that are appliqued on there. They are supposed to mean "thinking of you". I thought that was appropriate for these swap blocks :D

    A grand quilt, just a touch of yellow for surprise, and the idea of making two settings in one quilt is AWESOME!
    Thank you for sharing your pictures with us.
