    Mirabelle, I have been looking at this kit in the Keepsake catalog and I also see that you had to add a beige strip to make it all work. I've never ordered a kit before, preferring to cut my own pieces and my concern has been that the pattern isn't correct. Was that the case with this kit? Was the pattern such that one would have to make adjustments?
    And it's a lovely quilt. Good work and nice quilting.

    A beautiful quilt, it is. Interesting how we have to ad lib to a pattern sometimes. I just recently had to add 'sides' to my Labyrinth quilt ( I recently posted) to make it look finished in lieu of 'chopped off' as the pattern showed. Thanks for sharing

    As others have said, this quilt (pattern, colors) is beautiful. You did a great job on it. Thanks for sharing, bet they have a run on this pattern. How many colors are there? Did you quilt it yourself or have it quilted. Looks like another for my barrell list. BrendaK

    Wow that is really beautiful.
