    I've got the BOMs all set and the top in one piece!
    Do you remember how they looked before? I'll include the before and after. This is an excellent example of how my quilts tend to grow and do their own thing. Trust me! I had no idea this was how this quilt would turn out.

    Do I get the award for the loudest quilt! The most colorful? The??? :lol: :lol:

    Name given the quilt by my sister.

    You are the master, Yvonne. I bow to you. Another beautiful BOM quilt! This one is a work of art with all your add-ons! I just love your style! And I'm very proud my Snail's Trail made it in there! Can I be you if I grow up?

    Thank you! I knew if any one would "appreciate" all that color it'd be you all here.

    Chele, I think we have a mutual admiration society going here. I always love your work! We need to collaborate sometime! Oh, boy!

    Thank you everyone! I truly appreciate your comments. I'm with Lisa with the "more color" attitude. I've decided this has to be considered a "Picnic quilt." No way is anyone going to be able to sleep under this. I think it might cause nightmares! :lol:
    I sure enjoyed watching this quilt evolve. It made me smile every time I'd walk into the sewing room. It was fun to work on! My sister-in-law thinks I should use the scraps to make the backing. I'm leaning more towards a polka-dot back. Time will tell!

    Most effective use of color to challenge one's perspective of quilt movement and complimentary color wheels!
    Absolutely .... breathtaking! LOL

    Thank you again for the wonderful comments.

    I was negligent in not saying that the setting for my blocks is not original. I must give credit where credit is do. I found this setting in a book called "Sensational Settings" by Joan Hanson. She has some great ideas. I also like Sharon Craig's setting book.

    There! Now my conscience is clear. :wink:
