    The return from the abyss

    This is the quilt that took me on a journey to the abyss, from which I almost did not return. I almost gave up quilting because of this quilt.

    Gorgeous. I can see why it almost drove you over the "abyss". You did a fantastic job.

    Gorgeous quilt! I have learned to put frustrations aside for a short time, then go back and deal with it.

    It's really pretty. I've got a couple patterns with a lot applique in each square but haven't had the courage to try them yet. Good for you.

    It is a very creative and wonderful quilt and I am so, so glad you did not give up. I think you probably learned a lot from doing this quilt and you also must have learned that no matter how difficult a project becomes, you can do it...Your quilt is quite wonderful. Congratulations on finishing it.
