BOTH sides of this quilt are stunning!  Your pieced backing reminds me of the improvisational African American quilts I am so fond of.  Your machine quilting is amazing too--I can't wait to try it myself.  Great work!

Wow--you made all these different fabrics go so well together.  That alone is an art form.  Kitty clearly approves!

This is gorgeous--I love the colors.  I also like the way the blocks look three-dimensional.  The print squares seem to float up over the solid squares.  What a success!

This is adorable.  Is that little decorative running stitch around the stars?  Would love to see a closeup and more!  Love the polka dots.

Truly stunning work--congratulations.  One of my long-ago home-ec teachers told us this was the hardest of all quilt patterns to do.  I've been in awe ever since.  I agree this belongs on the wall, not the table.

This looks good enough to eat!

Wow--so gorgeous!  I love your choice of fabrics and the quilting looks great.

Here is a little quilt I made for my goddaughter, Sophie, just to celebrate my new sewing machine (Brother Innovis NX-450).  It's just amazing to have a machine that actually *works*.  (Previous machine = vintage 1972 Sears Kenmore.)

Anyway, this is a lime and purple strip quilt with fabrics depicting little Japanese girls in kimonos.  I put a green polka-dot flannel on the back to make it cozy to sit under.  And I quilted it in a random set of crooked lines I thought might resemble chop sticks.  I actually don't know how to machine quilt yet so this was the best I could come up with.

Here's the finished product:

Here's a closeup of some of the fabrics:

And here's the back with the "chopstick" machine quilting:

All I have left to do is put a signature square on the back!

Wow--excellent fit around the neck.  I always get my dog sweater necks too tight or too loose.  Did you "knit to fit" or have a pattern?

Thanks!  I put a square of old terry cloth in the middle, but I think felt would have worked better.  For true moisture block, maybe add a square of flimsy plastic?
