    How cheerful and colorful! This is about the prettiest treatment I've seen of a stack and whack design.

    What a beauty this one is!
    I'm sure it will help chase the blues away as your cousin goes thru treatment and deals with the "beast"/

    Could you please show us the original fabric? Thanks!

    Exactly what I thought. You must have taken a lot of time to select fabric!

    I like those centers. Well done.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any of the original fabric with me, as I am in the midst of moving and it is already packed up and taken away. Needless to say, it was very colorful!

    That's one of the prettiest stack n whacks I've seen. I love how you set them in the blocks. You must have started with an amazing print... The finished quilt is just beautiful.

    Gorgeous! I just love the bright colors with the whitish snowball blocks. Your borders are very nice, as well. Your cousin will love it along with her speedy recovery!

    All I can say is 'Ditto'! This is the prettiest stack & whack I've seen, the white really sets it off and showcases each beautiful pieced block - well done! And all the best to your cousin!

    I love the way you set the blocks together with the snow ball block and the white(light) blocks really let the pretty stack and whack block shine. Beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing.
    God Bless,
    Rachel

    awesome! and the antique bed is perfectly suited for it too. it reminds me of my grandmother's guest bedroom.

    I am not generally thrilled with stack-n-whack quilts but yours is beautiful. I like the brightness of the colors against the white. Very Pretty
