    Nice quilt! Isn't that a great pattern? I have made a few (12or so) of those. I like having lots of different fabrics in my quilts.

    Thank you all!

    I did like making that quilt. I took a beginner's class with my sister (she was the beginner) in hopes of getting her into quilting. I gave her my old sewing machine and a bunch of notions. Her's is sitting unfinished in the corner of her dining room. Oh well, I tried.

    I did learn a great hint from the teacher - she said that if you pick a focus fabric, you can use the color chart in the selvage to help pick out the other colors in your quilt. I never thought of that.

    I'll have to check on the size of the quilt.

    I love the quilt and the colors..that is a very helpful hint to use the color chart in the selvage. Thanks
    That is another one I'd like to make.

    Great colors, I've been contemplating a quilt for a guy friend of mine and something like this would be great. I'm pretty awful (OK, inexperienced!) at choosing and combining colors. Terrific inspiration..thanks :D :D

    Beverly - it really wasn't hard at all. You should try one. It goes together pretty quickly. Lots of straight seams and no triangles!!!!
