craftydeb's patterns are always so easy to follow. And yes, I like  the idea of adding a grin or mouth of some kind. Did you check out craftydeb's blog page? She posts soon to be release things. She recently posted a cat type monster. So cute. Can't wait to get THAT pattern.

Ugly - NO ! 
Remember, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 

It looks great. Simple and Bold. I think the colors are so different that they play off each other. Anyway, for whatever reason, it works, and that's all that counts. Good work.

I know what you mean when you said that you didn't like the way it was looking, so you PUT IT AWAY. Congratulations on deciding to finish it. It was well worth it. Others may have never picked it up again. I know I had one quilt that bugged me for several reasons and I had to keep putting it away. I think it finally was finished something like 13 years after it had been started.  But I finally finished it and it looked great, too.

I haven't seen this pattern done up before. Very interesting and you did a great job. Very nice finished project.

Great! I can't find the right words - so I guess really great will have to do.

I've always been attacked to star quilts. I did one once, not a happy experience, but it finally came out fine. Yours may actually inspire me to try another.  Great work. Especially like the swirling colors in the first one.

Great quilting. I love it. Very interesting on so many levels. I've never gotten into all that fancy quilting. The quilting makes the back of the quilt as beautiful as the front. Very good work.  Love it a lot.

Since we relocated to St.Thomas, USVI I haven't given much thought to fall leaves. However, you made me remember all the years of jumping in piles of raked leaves with my friends as a child. It's is really beautiful. Everything came together great. (One never really knows how a quilt will really look until it's all together). I was particularly impressed with the way you did the large leaves. Love it. I can't think of anything you could have done better. I really love it.

I love it, but one thing you should consider for future quilts. The life of your quilt is only as long as the life of the individual fabrics in the quilt. I am concerned about the lame. I've not found it to hold up well. Your quilt deserves a long life and I'm sure it will be loved for a very long time. I know my kids and their kids still have some of their baby quilts.  I've had to make repairs on some of them and as I am doing these repairs I wished I had used better fabrics. Again, I want to say how much I like your quilt and I don't mean to take anything away from it or your effort.  Just something to consider for the future choice of fabrics.

I love your quilt and have a suggestion.

I am just finishing up memory quilts for 2 of my granddaughters high school graduation gifts. I planned on having them finished for them to take with them when they left for college. I'm running a little behind. Smiley  Anyway, what I'd like to suggest is that whenever you sew for your little one, save some scrapes from each project. I wished I had thought to do this for my granddaughters. I only have scrapes from a few of their dresses and Halloween costumes for their quilts. I would suggest you set aside and label a box to place them in. Then as you sew, you can put them away for future memories. The highlight of the memory quilts that I am making are embroidered squares that each represent something from their growing up. They are pieced with a lot of scrapes (and memories). The first one is almost finished and I hope to post it soon.
