Wow, really classy. I love the colours - the very definition of modern quilting. Interesting, very sophisticated pallet, elegant, warm, restrained. the back is awesome. The quilting is beautiful. Great job!!

I did! Although I had a very frustrating time on that particular machine I used, so I'm goign to have to find a new one to rent...

thanks! I got a fat quarter printed through spoonflower with my little arrow and name graphic printed on it about every 2 inches. Then I cut a 2 inch wide strip out making sure to place the graphic just to the right of the center mark that way when I pieced it into my double fold binding the tag would line up on the back of the quilt! It was a lot less tedious than it sounds.

As for time, all told, the entire quilt top and back piecing took me about a month of working on it a couple nights a week after work and then spending about 5 hours a night the last 3 nights working to finish it before my quilting appointment!

Thanks! I just saw the quilt in action saturday night when I was hanging out at their house so I know they love it enough to keep it on their bed!
