Totally amazing and beautiful!  Did you hand applique the pattern?  I am so jealous because that is the one thing I can't seem to master.

Flea ~ great job! 

Yarn ~ don't give up yet.  I just finished a quilt top that I made 3 years ago.  I have a box of WIP/UFOs (work in progress/unfinished objects) and have made a commitment that I must finish these before I start something new. So put them away for now because someday you'll finish them.  Smiley

I can't see the photo! Embarrassed I just used the W&N batting and quilted 10" part.  But mine is a wall hanging.  I would probably go closer if it's going to be used alot.  Can you post another pic or a link?? Huh

Beautiful quilts!  The first one reminds me of fall because of the colors.  Smiley

Thanks so much for the compliment!  It was my first quilt.  I bought a kit that contained the fabric and pattern.  I really didn't know what I was doing.  If you look closely, one of the blocks is much longer on one side of the quilt.  My sister didn't care and wanted it anyway!  I also made a matching pillow out of the left over blocks.

Yes, it's flannel and a rag quilt.  It has batting in the middle unlike the denim rag quilt.  I first sewed the hearts on the square, then followed the directions to make each individual "sandwich" and attached them together.  The hardest part was cutting all the edges to make it raggy.  I would recommend buying those springy scissors to do this type of quilt.  My hand hurt so much and I got blisters from using the scissors. 

One more thing, you need a good vacuum and you have to clean your drier every 10 minutes to get all the strings out.  The more washing, the better it looks.

On point means when you take a square block and turn it so the corner (point) of the square is facing up.  Now you have a diamond pattern.  If you look at my photos (link below), the 2003 Signature Block Quilt blocks were set on point.

What do you mean by spiral in the middle?  Was it the fabric or how the block was constructed?  Could you post a picture?
