    Last week was a quilt week for me. Monday was a holiday so we went to the "Quilts of the Netherlands" and then Thursday I went to Quilt Canada, and Friday was the first day of my guild's retreat, an entire weekend of quilting! I was not sure what I was going to bring but on Thursday I bought this kit, Friday night at retreat I cut it out and then Saturday I put it together. Now this weekend my plan is to quilt it. I have 1 on the rack to finish and then I'll add this one. I hope to finish both on Saturday. I think I'm going to quilt it all in circles to add some motion to it but was hoping for your opinions as well. What do you think?

    I really liked the colours...I'm a big orange fan.

    Wow! You have been busy! And, you're fast! Orange is not my favorite color, but this is beautiful.

    Yes, I think that circles for the quilting -- large ones, I think -- would be great on this.

    Not bad considering I started sewing at 9:30 am stopped for about few hours to go shopping (It was the mennonite relief sale & show. So we were gone for 2-3 hours) stopped for dinner and was completed the top at 1:30am.

    Orange isn't my favorite color either, but I'm reconsidering this. Love your quilt, it's beautiful.

    OK NOW...WHY CAN I NOT SEE A PICTURE. THIS HAPPENS TO ME ALOT.
    After all that yelling I go back to page 1 and there it is. But I really do frequently not have a pic and everyone else talks about it. Oh Well!!!
