    Oh, my gosh... I ordered precuts (10 inches) from Connecting Threads and am in the midst of making almost the exact same type of quilt. My fabrics are a bit brighter but I am using black to frame it just like you did. This is so reminiscent of how I envisioned my quilt. I am not following a pattern but just randomly decided to do this. I should be posting the pictures in a few weeks. I really like the wider black sashing near the edges. I was worried about how the quilt would turn out but yours looks great.

    That is really, really pretty. Nice job. If she doesn't like it, I have a DGD that will (hint, hint).

    That is just awesome. I had to bookmark it, and will do it some day. Love the black framing, and agree that it does have the stained glass effect.
