    Woven Rainbows

    WooooHooo!! I finally took the time to figure out how to post pictures (it really is very simple...) I hope you aren't tired of looking at my quilts. Here is one that I made for my daughter's BFF, Lisa. It is a pattern from Julie Popa called "Sunset". One of the quilt board members, Angelmerritt, had made one in the same bright colours on a black background and had it as her avatar. She was nice enough to share the name of the pattern with me. I promised her that I would post a picture when I was done, (and it took a bit longer than I expected), so here it is. It looks a whole lot like hers (I hope you don't mind Angelmerritt!) Lisa just loved it!! She is a college student and it will brighten up her room.

    This is a beautiful quilt. The colors are wonderful! I especially like the way it is quilted with heart shapes in multicolored thread.

    That is amazing! I'm thinking it was tricky to keep the colors where they should be! Well done! Love the quilting thread choice.
