    Wow it does give the illusion of the floor and bed being "lumpy" haha. I love it though and hope to make one too.....on the "to do" list like many other beautiful quilts I see on this site. Great job.

    I am so thankful for all the wonderful comments.

    I made photos of mine a minute ago and am going to post it. When you get ready to do your next one let's buddy up and do them at the same time. That would be so fun!
    I will be eagerly awaiting the pattern -- probably won't start it until next spring. I live (in spring and summer) in Maine, I prpbably will take a trip to NH to Keepsake Quilting because they have an awesome array of fabrics. It will be an overnite to Lake Winnepesaukee near the mountains. I love the Keepsake catalog but rarely buy thue it,

    Hmmm -- we are moving to WA in March and even tho the tubs have doors, I like shower curtains. The one I have here is in colors of the sand and sea from Aruba. I think a swish curtain will be fantastic!!!!!!!

    Mim, a Swish shower curtain is a fantastic idea! It would be totally awesome! Shouldnt't be hard to line it. Excellent idea!!!
    Let us know how it comes along. Send me a pm when you post on it so I don't miss it please.

    I'm new here so I don't know how to save messages -- I will post here when I do it --- I may make a curtain as a trial sample for the quilt which is to be a gift

    Thanks for posting the pictures.......it really looks like you have a door or window open and it's blowing in the breeze. You, Marilyn, and Dorothy have really inspired me to get back to finishing my 'Swish'. Jinnie
