    Talking Thanks to my ISO request! Twin turned into a Queen sized!

    Thanks to OK Dara, MEH and MaryAnnMc I've been able to complete the quilt "Right Foot Red!" properly. I was using a discontinued fabric from Connecting Threads for the background, had trouble with the pattern, and the fabric was directional! Thanks to my friends here on the board I was able to satisfy my need to have the diamonds in the background all going the same way, I was also able to expand the scope of the project! This quilt will reside in Michigan at a friends house where it was "born" on my Featherweight. I "just" need to quilt and bind it. Any suggestions are always welcomed if you have ideas on how to quilt it!

    Thanks again to those who helped me out with the fabric!

    The pattern was based on a free pattern from Hoffman Fabrics called "Royal Mendhi" and the pattern was "Crystals". I modified it to suit my needs, here's a link http://www.hoffmanfabrics.com/conten...asp?FolderID=7

    It looks terrific! I love the bright colors and that neat pattern. I'm so glad I had the fabric you needed to finish it. This is really fun for me, since I have several of those fabrics myself. Thanks for sharing!

    I've never seen that pattern before. Reminds me of the penny candy (yes there was such a thing) we used to by years and years ago.
    Beautiful quilt.
