    Since I couldn't sleep last night I took my leftover squares from my earlier wall hanging and did another one.

    I like it- the colors really woke me up. You can take a black laundry marker or fabric pen and run over the white stitching, rather than rip it out and re-sewing.

    Wowza! Right up my color alley! Good work! I've heard that adding orange to any quilt makes it prettier! :D :D :D :D

    I think this takes you past the status of a beginner. It looks really good to me--good choice of colors.

    Well thanks, but there is still so much I do not know how to do, so I think I am still a beginner. :)

    Nice job! How do you have so much time to do so much quilting? I am a beginner too but it takes me forever to get things right. Anyway nice work.

    I have had the last 11 days off work for the christmas break and was suffering from insomnia most of that time. SO I had plenty of time to do work on these things.

    I know the feeling. Heck it's 3:05 here in Alabama.

    Welcome to the board. Keep up the good work. A good queen sized quilt will take some of the starch out of you. Ask me, I know.

    I have been here a year, these people are great.

    Take care,

    tim, not in san jose
