    Hi everyone,

    I am new here. Just thought I would show you a quilt I made for my son, Matthew. "As long as it doesn't have flowers" was my brief.

    He loved my quilt. This is queen size.

    I pieced my quilt, but had Robyn Dall from Bunbury, Western Australia quilt it for me on her long arm quilting machine. She did a spectacular job. I have a shoulder injury and can't quilt the larger quilts.

    Matthew's heirloom quilt from me. Most of the fabrics are from Jinny Beyer range of fabrics.

    Oh, Anne, that is simply stunning. I'm sure Matthew loves it.

    That is a show stopper quilt. I am sure he loved it. Who wouldn't?

    What a beautiful quilt, your son is one lucky fellow. Looks like someone like to garden also. Pretty.

    Absolutely Fabulous! Love the effects of light dark creating the on point squares. Your LA quilter did a great job!

    Your son stated his wishes (no flowers) and got a gorgeous quilt. Great job with fabric choices, pattern selection, settings, borders, and selecting a wonderful long arm quilter. Fabulous quilt.

    Oh, Wow! That is totally fabulous!!! I love the brightness against the black and I really love the way you did your inner borders. Jinny Beyer's line is one of my absolute favorites. Have you seen her latest ones -- Coraline, Outback and Sophia? Lovely.
