    Absolutely gorgeous, it turned out perfectly. Your work is wonderful and this quilt is the proof of it. So worth all your troubles with it. I'm so glad you finished it up.

    The quilt is gorgous, no matter the story behind it.

    If laying a quilt aside for 2 years would produce a beauty like this, it's time to start turning them loose! Very, very nice work!

    Went and read your story, you sure should write, maybe you could turn that into a parttime job. There is a lady who writes books that are quilting based, and they sound like they should be really good.

    Green with envy, wish I had your talent!!! I do much simpler quilt patterns and keep saying I am going to do something more complicated soon. Maybe 2013 will be the year for me. So much inspiration on QB. If I am ever going to have something this beautiful, I just better jump in feet first and start cutting and sewing. I just love this quilt.

    I think Karen Mctavish says it best "Quilt out of your comfort zone, you won't be disappointed!" I'm by no means an advanced quilter but I strive to be. Its all about where you devote your energy. Someday before I die I'd like to get just one quilt in a big show. Its baby steps, I hope you find it within yourself to take a step outside your comfort zone in 2013, good luck and thank you for inspiring me!

    A writer I'm not, sometimes life just gives you a good story. My dad tells some of the best, maybe its an inherited trait. Glad you enjoyed my sewing adventure.
