    Here is the quilt I made for our department's Christmas Party. It was the Grand Prize door prize. This is the 2nd year that my boss has paid me to make a quilt to give away. The first one was the Batik Beauty I posted last year. I like them both, but prefer the the first one.

    However, this one made up quite fast. It was a pattern in one of the quilt magazines. If you want to know the pattern, I'll look it up.

    Beautiful quilt. No wonder your boss asks you to make them.
    Thanks for sharing.

    It's beautiful. I'd like the pattern name if it's not a too hard. My next quilt will be auctioned at a Cystic Fibrosis dinner dance. I'd like to do it in batiks. The art teacher who asked for it suggested neutrals, but that's not me. Unusual for an art teacher.

    Thanks for the very high praise everyone!! It means a lot to me. I'm at work, so tonite I'll post the pattern information.

    BTW, my Quilting Friendship Group (known as Sewful Sisters) has decided to make this pattern as our group project for the first quarter of 2011. Pretty cool, hunh?
