    I just want to take time to tell you that you have a really neat use of color!
    The work, of course, is excellent - - but, I really enjoy your color combinations ...
    Thank you for sharing!

    So, then I go back to look at the pictures one more time, and amazingly! I find three more pieces, and again! You use colors really nicely.
    Good job!

    Bored yet? These are the last for the moment. I made this quilt for a friend out of 10kg bread bags. I only used the fronts then added sashing etc. I had seen one of these quilts years ago, and thought "hmmmm. one day". This type of quilt is called a "Wagga" I believe.

    Please give me an honest opinion as to whether you like it or not. My daughters are not too enthralled with this type of quilt (I am making 2 more!!), but my friend and her family were rapt.

    I am in the death throes of finishing a quilt for my youngest daughter, Emma. It is a king size plus black and white log cabin with a D9P back. Wheww, that was a lot of piecing, a hella lot of quilting and a hella lot of fabric - and, I loved every minute of it!!

    The back. I love the little mushrooms.

    You do very well with your meandering/stippling. When you can be relaxed enough to keep the spacing quite large, the quilt is warmer.
    The first time I really put an effort into stippling, added to my "control issues" ... I got the stitching so dense and close together that you could take that queen sized quilt with two fingers and hold it up and it would stay out straight ... no warm fuzzies in that quilt! LOL
    If you are going to try something new, the tutorial on "over the top feathers" will be very helpful to you. I am currently quilting a double wedding ring quilt and having read the tutorial, I was able to translate that onto the quilting frame/machine set up I have. I even got brave enough to put a few ribbons and bows into the quilting because of that tutorial ...
    The more you quilt, the more you will try, the more creative you will get.
    I think you are doing a very fine job. Keep up the good work!
    And, thanks for sharing. It is such an encouragement to see how others get their work done, and such an inspiration to see their color combinations, etc.

    Thank you all so much for your very kind comments. I've go that "warm & fuzzy" feeling. It does mean a lot when someone you don't know gives nice comments and constructive advice. You are all really nice people.

    Thank you again, Dianne

    The last 4 are awesome as well. I love the brown one and the bread bag one is very interesting to me. It brought back the memory of women, like my mom, using the feed bags for fabric. Great job of quilting.

    Beautiful Dianne - I love your fabric choices and your quilting is excellent. The pieced star and the Japanese hanging are my faves but I also love the bread bag one - I was reminded of the feed sacks used by pioneers. I'm a sucker for all those oldy worldy packaging items, advertising boards etc - it's so nostalgic and a quilt is a great way to preserve the memory.
