    Wholecloth quilt finished

    This is my sooo out of my league quilt I have just finished. I broke every rule ,and then some , in the quilter's handbook. Although, one of the Craftsy instructors said there are no rules, anything goes if you are doing for yourself and not entering it in a show. I would never be good enough to enter one of my. The receipent of the quilt loves it so that is all that matters. Thanks for looking. Oh, as you know, my pictures are always pathetic.Name:  Wholecloth finished 001 (640x480).jpg

    From the photos I'm looking at, I think you did a superb job. If I had anything, I wouldn't be afraid to let you quilt it.

    rules are made to be broken and I think your quilt should win a blue ribbon in a show beautiful, besides that who made up the rules?

    Looks wonderful to me. Aren't rules meant to be broken? At least I think they are in quilting.

    If my quilting would look so beautiful, I'll break the rules too. Your quilts are great. Thanks for sharing.

    I like what I see! I want to see the whole quilt, hanging on a cloths line when it is finished, too. Breaking the "rules" is how great things happen!
