    I was home last week for a couple of days and couldn't stay in bed cos everything hurt :-( and daytime television was absolutely woeful :shock: so I relegated my virus to the sewing room and came up with this. Now all I have to do is save up to have it quilted. I started my first free motion quilting class on Tuesday and am now busy practicing. Not game to try a quilt top yet, but know that I will get there someday!! I am now addicted to oriental fabric!! I just love it!!!! :D

    Wow, if you created this while being ill, I can't imagine what you do when you are well (smile). This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    Love it with the black border, even if it isn't a border, but sure makes it pop!!!

    Wow. I read your other post about wanting more fabric and how you fell in love with this type of fabric. No wonder!
    That is beautiful. Love it.

    Can't believe you had the energy to do such a beautiful quilt.

    I thought it was beautiful in the first picture, then I saw it with the black border...WOW! Did that make the blocks pop, or what? Beautiful!

    It is very beautiful. I love oriental fabrics but seldom can figure out what to do with them.

    I agree that there is just SOMETHING magnetic about Oriental fabric.
