WOWSERS!! That is fabulous. I recall you posting that you were going to make an Eiffel Tower quilt but I never fathomed how absolutely awesome it would turn out. Has your niece seen it yet? I predict she will be simply overwhelmed at how many details you put into this. From the couple silhouetted on the bridge to the great detail of putting the padlocks in the corners. I read that Paris recently cut a bunch of those padlocks off because the weight of them was causing undue deterioration on the bridge. You incorporating them in the quilt ensures the couple will always have their padlocks remembered. Take a bow, this one is a true work of art, heart and love!
