    Tried this technique for the first time. I decided to use a pastel batik as the main fabric but realised that it did not pop as well as a solid fabric would of. Oh well to bad, notch this up to a learning experience! Think I prefer the back of the quilt to the front.

    It is just wonderful. I could hang it on my wall if I had a wall to display it on most of my wall are used.

    Love this one and the convergence one. You are you own worst critic. Beautiful work and colors on both.

    Oh I love this. QAYG is one of my favorite ways to make them.

    My next project will be a QAYG. I plan to start it this week and it sounds so encouraging and faster!

    Well I think it's beautiful. The effect is more subtle than if you'd used a darker sashing but this invites closer inspection rather than 'in your face' impact and makes for a really elegant quilt. So there! :mrgreen:

    PS I also love the look of the squares between the strips - the way they radiate out when the blocks are place together. I really LOVE this quilt. :D

    I like the quilt, and the picture of the camel on the beach is pretty colorful too. LOL:-)

    I have done a couple in this style, and enjoy the fact that the quilt is truly reversable!

    I think I would like doing that but not quite sure how you go about it. How do you put the squares together after done quilting and not have it pucker or poof out a lot?

    This is the 2nd quilt I've looked at of yours that you said you prefer the back! I think you are much too hard on yourself- they are both really pretty!

    The colors you chose may not cause the blocks to "pop" but they certainly create some unique color trends and flows. I think it's absolutely beautiful. Not everything needs to pop, sometimes quiet beauty is better.


    Have you ever seen sisters--one strikingly beautiful and the other very pretty in a classic sort of way but not striking? Ever see them when they age? The striking beauty fades but the classic beauty remains beautiful forever.
