    Let me add my welcome! I hope you'll stay and get to know us. Your St. Basil's is awesome. I love paper piecing, too, and I have designed a few of my own. It is the best way to get accurate points and to handle bias edges. I haven't tackled anything as complicated as St. Basil's, though!

    Thanks. Yes, and with paper piecing you can make very thin and fine details. On my web-site, you can have some free patterns. Please, show some of your designs :)

I have done some others as well, but my camera and computer are having a feud now, so I can't post any pictures right now! :( I am using an old computer right now, and am lucky I can do mail! :lol:
    Thanks. Im looking forward to see your quilts :)

    Thanks to all of you.
    Some times I think, that I live a wrong place.
    Some days ago my "St Basil" came back from Norway, where it has been in a competition in the Norwegian quilt Assosiation
    That was no fun.
    Everything was wrong:
    Bad colour, bad composed, quilting not to talk about, teknique bad, aesthetic also bad. All over bad.
    The judgement was not even signed, and it was written on a blank dokument.
    Im happy for all your positive comments, so it was not "that down". Now I say with Bob Dylan:
    "Some people can be wrong sometimes - I think Abraham Lincoln said that - But all people cant be wrong all the time - I said that".
    :D :D :D

    Jette, My reaction to your unfavorable review is astonishment! All here unanimously think St Basil is beautiful and beautifully done. There is no accounting for taste or diplomacy or even good judgment in some people Go with the majority-----your quilt is an awesome treasure!!

    Jette, I don't understand this. Your quilt is fabulous! And I adore the colors. I really admire you for being able to make a picture into a paper piecing pattern.

    I also love your birds on your website. You are obviously AWESOME!

    welcome, and wow, that's paper piecing? I thought it had to have all straight lines. I don't know that technique, but it sure looks good! :D
