    haven't you ever heard---quilting makes the quilt
    often a quilt you may wonder what you were thinking will turn out to be quite wonderful once it is quilted
    yours is such a quilt- quite lovely!

    It is beautiful. Quilting always makes a top prettier, even if it's just SITD and invisible. I think being DONE makes it look better too.

    This reminds me of the quilts my granny would make for me and my sisters to drag around to the beach, camping, drive-in, or wherever. I loved my drag around quilt. It went everywhere with me and so many people wanted my quilt. My granny named them 'drag around'. Good memories!

    I think it is beautiful. Your arrangement of the jewel tone colors, soft pastels and prints and the gold metallic stitching of large loopy flowers makes it very appealing and ornate-looking.

    It wasn't bad beffore. You were to self-critical. The quilting really nakes it, however.
