    Well, I finally plucked up the courage to take my neighbour the lap quilt I made her! She seemed a bit embarressed but I think she liked it. She said it was beautiful colours and she'd put it on the sofa and she said thank you twice! She's a typical, no nonsense French country lady so for her, that was effusive praise indeed. I'm so happy she liked it - she's done so much for us, looking after chooks and caat when we're away, advising on gardening, giving veggie plants and surplus veggies. She and her hubby are great neighbours and I'm glad I could make her something she liked.

    She is obviously thrilled with it - I bet no-one gets to sit on the sofa for a while!

    Thanks girls - sidmona, the colours are more her taste than mine! I've never been past the kitchen in her house so don't know her decorating taste but I've been eyeing up her bed linen etc on the washing line for a while now to help pick a colour scheme! I must say though, I am pleased with the way the colours work together, thanks again for your kind comments all!

    Good Job and I think it is beautiful. Wish my neighbors were like you. Although I did just get a new neighbor (My youngest daughter lives across the lane in front of our property. Maybe since she is laughing at my attempts at this she will feel sorry for me and make me one.. :roll: :roll: :roll: Great quilt.

    Great job and I'm glad it was well received.

    I suppose you can learn quite a lot from eyeing your neighbor's bed linens!! :wink:
