    I have to say this is my favorite quilt. I'm not giviing this one away. It was too much work. I got a good deal on the custom quilting so a great thanks goes out to Linda at Flying Heart Quilt Works in Bennett, Colorado. Hope you like this one too.

    That is AWESOME. I'm assuming you received a piece of the pattern at each shop you hopped to. Can the pattern be purchased too?

    Oh my--that is amazing. Definitely a keeper!! I'd love to see more photos of it--more of the whole quilt and some squares. :D

    We did get a piece of the pattern at each of 10 shops. Had to blow a lot ot the pieces up. We could have bought the fabric too which I chose not to do but next time I think I will buy it. Our next hop is August 1-3. Since I'm no longer in classes I either have to go alone or take the bus for $70. It will take 2 days to hit all the shops either way.

    Thanks to all of you for your kind comments. Don't know what I'm gonna make next time but may be a baby or wedding quilt for my neice. I'd like to try the wedding ring or the dresden plate soon.

    Doubt that will happen but I'll keep you in mind. I see you live in Spain. I just got back Tuesday night from 2 weeks in Grimsby, England. I had a great time getting back together with my best friend.

    I'd like to do that but I just don't have the room to. The finished size is 68 X 81. Don't really want it on my bed because my husband's cats sleep all over it. I have to cover my bed with a sheet every day to keep off the fur. I'll have to figure out some where to put it though/

    Almost all of the fabric is batik. Got to be expensive but I new it was gonna be worth it. It has solid navy blue on the back.

    It is gorgeous! I'd have a hard time giving it away, too!

    I hope you'll find the perfect spot for it soon.
