    Thanks Gail, have been thinking of echo quilting and will have a go at the weekend and see how I do. Think the heart in the middle will be echoed once inside and outside and thats it, I think :D :D
    Good luck. Can't wait to see it. LOL

    That's OK, Granny. Alyssa may be able to teach you a lot about the computer, but I'd bet you can surely teach her a lot about that sewing machine. Right? We all have our gifts.

    What a lucky granddaughter. You did a beautiful job. I have always loved the watercolor effect just not willing to do that much precise piecing.

    Oh no its not precise piecing, its easy with the kit. You lay the already cut 2" squares on the fusible gird design all marked out for you. You place your pieces a bit like a jigsaw. Press to make all the squares stick. Turn the quilt over and fold where the lines on the gird are. Do a 1/4" seam down each one, then do the same across the quilt. DONE.
    Look at Whims.com, they have some really easy and gorgeous designs.

    I have made several watercolour wallhangings with the same technique. It's so much better to do it that way than to have to sew each square one at a time!

    Elle, Where did you get the pattern? I love the heart design with the pansy. Like I said it is gorgeous.

    Its from Whims.com. They have some super patterns, you will have a hard job to pick out one. If you buy one, remember to buy your Fusible backing, because it doesn´t come with the kit. They also have wall hangings. When I eventually finish this one I am doing I have another called Jade birds, but it is more difficult as the applique pieces are very small.

    the Pansy material for the centre came as a piece and I just fussy cut it. they also have a video showing how it is done.

    Elle - Thanks for the nice words :D

    For all those who have been looking for this site where I got my kit from, sorry I made a mistake. Here is the sites name:

    www.whims.cc

    That should help you all.

    thought you would like it. One of our ladies is doing the Tulip Runner and another is doing the cats looking out over the daisies, it is really nice.

    Beautiful quilt! Never saw a watercolor like this made into a full quilt. How did you decide to finish it? I would like to see it if you can put a pic on. Thanks for sharing
