Very pretty!  I like how the design is offset - is that on purpose?  It looks cool, in any case.  How big is it?

I would say it is about the size of a lap quilt. I don't think it was meant to be offset...hahaha...Thanks for the compliment!

Well, on purpose, or not, it came out great that way!  Sometimes our accidents produce the best results!

That's beautiful. I LOVE the color scheme. I was making my second quilt for my mom and it didn't exactly get done for Christmas  Grin You did a great job!

 Cheesy
Good!!!!!! It is fantastic to search craftster, and see so many gorgeous quilts.
I have made 2 pretty floral single bed quilts, one with lots of different favourite fabrics in pinks & blues, and another pink & white Laura Ashley windmill quilt, with a marbled green
border. Now my son, (who's almost 13, needs a quilt). This will be in blues, white, and yellow to match his room. Just seems odd not to be able to choose pretty floral fabrics!!!
I don't think he'd appreciate those!!! Embarrassed

Happy New Quilting Year!!!! Cheesy
