    Well, I have finished my THIRD quilt! You seasoned pros out there are probably laughing your butts off, having probably finished the multitude of gifts you plan to give out this year!
    I am SO PROUD of this and can't wait til they see it...I am secretly hoping they just don't like it, so I can keep it for myself!
    I have a public album of the photos, since I can only post three here (and I am over the moon about the entire project!!) here: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/sredi...5AE&feat=email
    I, of course, can point out ALL of the flaws but, I figure that will go into the album I have started so I "grow" with each quilt I make. I am a sewer but have only recently started quilting so this may not be in the "traditional sense" of quilting, as you may all know...forgive me but, I do what I know best and try to apply it to your techniques here.
    I SO ENJOY learning from all of you and have to say a BIG THANK YOU to the person who brought my attention to an actual needle that should be used for metallic thread! I have been fighting with it since I started and, fight no more! :oops: :oops:

    "You seasoned pros out there are probably laughing your butts off"

    Huh? What? I know my third attempt at making a quilted project didn't look anything like yours, and I've been quilting for 20 years. Your work is creative, thoughtful, and downright wonderful. Pat yourself on the back since we can't but wish we could.

    This is a STUNNING quilt. You chose very difficult fabrics and threads that many of us avoid, and if there are flaws, I don't see them!

    The silver fabric is very deceptively soft metallic and very tightly woven (not sheer), in a polyester blend. Durable, from past experience and on the flat fold rack at JoAnn's for under $6 a yard!
