I made this with fabric from my stash. I did buy the black after I was finished because the colors were overwhelming. I think it looks like stained glass.
There is a good tute here: http://allsorts.typepad.com/allsorts/2006/10/crazy_about_qui.html

Great fun. It does look like stained glass. Have you quilted it too?
I think a dark navy blue would have worked well too.

It does look like stained glass! The contrast of the black sashing is a nice touch.

No, I haven't quilted it yet. I need to buy some batting. The quilt store isn't open on Monday.  Cry

Thanks for the compliments. I love the black, too.

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley
