    That's beautiful! :D The colors you chose are lovely. Are the blocks made up of tiny squares?

    thanks, the only tiny squares are in the wreaths. it is made with fusible. very easy and fun. the larger blocks kind of look like they are small squares also. that is the quilting.
    this was a very early effort & i now realize that i should have made the wreaths with a much bolder print and that their background should match much more closely the background fabric i chose.
    oh well, no quilt police, right?

    What a lovely quilt. No quilt police! We each have our own visions. Yours turned out quite beautiful!

    Aren't watercolor quilts fun? Yours is very pretty. I'm guessing you used Dina Pappas method of Quick watercolor quilting. I took her class before she actually wrote her book on the subject. Your fabrics are very pretty!!! :thumbup:

    thank you all for the kind words on this quilt. it was one of my first quilts and it was sooo easy. it is from the dina pappas quilt book but i saw her make it on alex andersons show. otherwise i wouldn't have realized how easy it was.
    again, thanks for bringing this old thread up again.

    I think this is a beautiful quilt. I am not sure why we always feel as if our quilts are not beautiful. Not so, quilts are full of love, patience and of course your time.

    This is a beautiful quilt, I would be pleased to have one just like it.

    My best to you and your projects.
