Completely beautiful! Where did you get those fabrics for $6? Do you have a picture of the entire quilt on a flat surface?

The time and thought you put into this design really comes through. Great job!

I got the squares a while back from my favorite online place for bargains:

I haven't seen them again since!
And I just happen to have a (not so great) pic of my quilt hanging on the fence, it definitely looks better draped:

Ilovepaper,

Beautiful, just beautiful. Someone told me once when I first started quilting that if you cant see the mistakes from a mile away on a fast horse you shouldn't worry about it, and girl I don't see a thing wrong with that beauty. Next time you quilt free motion, try wearing a pair of garden gloves with the little bumps on the palms. It helps keep the fabric from slipping. I always wear mine when quilting by machine. The more you practice the better you will get.

Great job, be very proud.
