    Love the color combination! The white really brings out the unique design. I visualize an Oriental screen that you can see through in the white spaces. Just beautiful! Good job and for a great cause.

    This is gorgeous, great color combination. Every part of the design pops. What pattern is it? I'm quite sure a lot of raffle tickets will be sold for this beauty.

    OK, don't shoot me but I'm a bit anal when it comes to this stuff.

    I see the way you pieced the Jacob's Ladder, but it looks to me like some of those 4 patches in the corner of some of the blocks need to turned so that the ladder is continuous.


    Unless it's some allegory about falling off the ladder........


    (it's the 4 patch in some of those blocks, in others, it's whole quarter block that's off - meaning the outside patches aren't in the correct position either)

    It took me a little while to see that cause I liked the overall look anyways, but as someone who's new to quilting I can say, that my first quilt top I started making, I made this kind of error, and it was in the middle of a couple of blocks, and the blocks hated me as it was, and I was like.. this is for charity, I don't care enough to rip it out, but since i'm also OCD about that kind of stuff but REALLY didn't want to re-do them, the quilt has not been completed. I don't find it horribly distracting in this particular pattern/color scheme and if it was me making THIS quilt, I probably would have left it and continued.

    THAT said, *I* appreciate that you are willing to offer constructive criticism and I invite you to do so on my postings in the future.

    Additionally, *I* did not notice MY error in MY quilt blocks until I had posted a picture and my aunt and mother pointed it out to me. So I was glad they did. Sometimes we don't see them until people point it out.

    Beautiful! I think we have all made quilts and after they are quilted we realize we made an error. I never saw my error until I posted the picture and than it hit me in the face.

    I never noticed that any thing was wrong with your quilt. The first thing that came to mind was WOW that is super cool.

    You have, I am sure hear the saying DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF. Great job.
