    Absolutely beautiful. I saw this quilt in the magazine and I think your color choices are much prettier. Keep up the good work.

    if your son doesn't like it....

    1- send it my way, I love it!
    2- call the white coats, because he definitely would be cerifitably insane not to like it

    you did a great job!

    I love it! The applique turns a simple strip quilt into a masterpiece.

    I love the quilt and sure that they will also. The black running stitch is very nice. Question - - did you do the machine applique on the flowers and leaves after it was layered for quilting? Excellent work and hard to believe that it is only your second quilt.

    Well lets hope so or it will be the white coats for them!!
    I looked up a few things on the web and I saw how you could make the petals puff up a bit if you FMQ all around the flower and left the petals till last. So that's what I did and I used a straight stitch sort of in the ditch around each petal after putting the layers together and any FMQ-ing-my eyesight isn't what it used to be!
    I don't think I would like to do this again..it was, to me anyway, very fiddly!
