    This is the quilt I made for my supervisor. He loved it and donated it to his club for a raffle. And then wanted me to make him another one. And got orders for 3 more quilts. Everyone thought it was so cool and wanted to win that one. Unfortunately I didn't have anymore of that fabric, so had to search around and findly found a different one.

    What a nice quilt, sounds like you'll be really busy for a while. Here'a a question from a newbie though. Are the white "stripes" pieced in or appliqued on?

    The white stripes are pieced in. Thak you everyone for your nice comments. Yes , I always make more work for myself; and never get my quilts made for me. My daughter said to stop saying "yes " to people.

    Very striking quilt. The white bands add a lot of "movement" to the quilt.

    Well beachlady, if I had your address yesterday--I would have sent him to you! Most times he is and adorable angel, but once in a while he will grow horns.

    ScubaK from here offered to me. It was just enough to do the throw size quilt. I am so glad she helped me out. And then when my supervisor said he wanted another one and was getting orders for more , I had to start searching again. I finaly found another print , from a shop in Hawaii.
