    Mark (hubby) claimed this one, so decisions were made with him in mind. The quilter and I chose "swirling leaves" for the quilting pattern and a dark gray thread. I thought a scrap binding was appropriate. :-D After years of not wanting his own quilt, hubby now has three. ;)

    Back--not quite the right color, but you may have seen this fabric.

    Light coming through the window makes the coloring at the middle and top about right.

    That is just a wonderful quilt. Your points are so sharp.

    btw, Is that a free pattern? I thought I remembered you writing about looking for this pattern from a picture, but maybe I am wrong.

    Weeelll, not all the points are so sharp. :roll: This one gave me some trouble. I showed the trouble spots in the post when I showed the top, but I didn't dwell on that again. It looks good from a distance, eh? :wink:

    Good memory!! I was looking for the pattern. I'd fallen in love with it from a quilt show. I finally found it in a book of blocks I have. I don't remember it now...I could look it up. I think this block has several names.

    I looked through my topics and found where I posted that info. Here you go:



    "I looked for it with no luck, then created it on EQ6 (haven't learned my 7 yet!) THEN found it in Marsha McCloskey's Block Party--a great book (I bought last year with a gift card from a student ). It's called Woodland Path. My poor book is permanently opened to the page from being folded back--I had to look closely at the pattern for the first 20 blocks before I could do it on my own. "

    I love pieced bindings too and sometimes am tempted to put them on quilts they shouldn't go on. :lol:

    Oh--he never cares if I visit a quilt shop. :wink:

    You know what's so nice? Two folks have visited my website since I posted this...I haven't had someone PM to tell me they've been there in a long long time. I love to hear people's thoughts. Since I'm not selling horses, I don't update it like I should... maybe I should do that sometime. ;-)
