    Ok, so I stole the idea of doing the Boxed Squares, using Hoffman Bali Pops in Cappucino. LOL Thanks to those that have gone before, they are the colors my SIL wants.

    The second is for my young niece, in fabrics I hand-dyed myself, except the black, blue and green that make up the borders.

    Those are lovely! And hand dyed! Beautiful colors on both.

    How did you learn how to dye your fabrics? Is there a good basic tutorial for it on the web? I would love to try this if it's not too technical.

    Both of those are gorgeous! I really like the bright colors of the first one. But the neutrals are just so elegant looking. Love them both.

    What pretty quilts. Love the coffee one. You are so brave to dye your colors! I would not do that in my kitchen. I have not found a color I needed bad enough to do that!

    Those are both beautiful. My DD would just love that bright one and the browns are so pretty and warm looking. Great job and thanks for sharing.

    Two beauties, what gorgeous colour schemes. This is such a versatile pattern isn't it.

    Wow - these both look like you ordered them from a catalog that sold high-end bed covers!

    Both quilts are great. Can't decide which I like best--actually like them both a lot.
