    I learned along time ago that my sewing time is precious. That's why when someone asks me to make something for them, my reply is "can I pick the fabrics from your main color pallet?" (how in the heck do you spell pallet?) For me it is more rewarding to surprise people with quilted gifts, and I don't gift people with handmade items that I don't know well enough to know what their likes and dislikes are. Chariety and fundraiser quilts are fun too.

    Janice,
    Your quilt turned out great!! :thumbup: I wouldn't worry one bit about the fact you are not sure of the color's. As long as your friend picked them out, I just bet she is going to be so thrilled with it. Just remember, to each his own!! Nice work!!
    :D :D :D :D

    If I made this quilt I would be happy with it. It's a great design.
    I would be happy to share my honest opinion of what I would learn from making this quilt. The center square fabric is a too busy print for star centers. The white star points do not have the focus factor next to the background. The border print is too busy and competes with the center squares. I think a narrow white inner border with a wider pink outer border would balance the quilt better then the dark wide border.

    Hi Janice,
    I think the quilt is really pretty. Do you have any more of the rust color? I think if you placed a border of that on the outside it would give the piece a more grounded feeling.
