    What is your view on this quilt?

    I made this a year ago and it just had a mind of its own. I loved every minute making this quilt but when I showed it to some people it got a cold reaction. There is no pattern I used two different size strips for the Log Cabin. to make it have more of a round shape. Now I have been with the QB for almost 4 years and I have loved it. I trust your opionon and I do know that if I like it it shouldn't matter what others say but I need some extra eyes on this one. it is a huge king size quilt because it had a mind of its own while I made it (it had to be made bigger and twist and turn). the back ground color is a sky blue and the other colors are pinks/browns and blue/browns. I will be quilting it soon just want to get some advice on if I should really go forward or put it back away LOL!

    Wonderful quilt top! The 2 different Log Cabin sizes made an interesting design. Non-quilters don't often get as excited as other quilters.

    I love original work - I quilt from what I see just before I go to sleep - your quilt is original vibrant and most importantly one of a kind - Marvelous!!

    I bet the negative reaction was because it is asymetrical - most people expect quilts to be symetrical. Personally I have been more and more inspired by things that are a little off center - it's an acquired taste and I love yours. I know how much work goes into such a quilt and appreciate it for its inventiveness. keep going!!

    It makes me smile to look at it! Love it!

    I have worked hard on quilts that I thought were beautiful and have them snubbed by non quilters. Even my oldest snubbed a quilt that I was making for him and my youngest snatched it up. It was an orange batik. My youngest got a kick out of picking the backing fabric - purple minkee! FYI - both my sons are in their 20's. One hated it, the other one loved it.

    I like the colors, layout, everything about it. It is a great twist on a traditional design. We all have different tastes. Those who are more traditional would probably have trouble with the design. I once made a quilt that I received mixed reactions on. The person I finally gave it to loved it.

    You are showing it to the wrong people if those who see it don't like it. It is great and interesting.@

    I love it. I'm a huge fan of working out of the box. And like you said,"It had a mind of its own". What else could you do? finish her up. Let the quilting "talk" too! I can't wait to see it finished.
