It is a beautiful bright piece. I really like the way that the colours stand out against the calm background.

I so like your comnbinations of colour. Your quilting goes SO well with the quilt. It looks beautiful. I have never done applique like that...must try it someday. Great design!!

Janet, it's a piece of art! I'm sure your swap partner will be thrilled to receive this lovely quilt. Thanks for bringing it to the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild meeting so we could all see it!

Wow, it came out just fantastic. I love the colors and the texture and the movement. The only way it could be better is if it were mine (LOL).

Oh Janet! This quilt is utterly amazing and I love how you showed all the steps in this post starting from your sketch! Wonderful! Did you attach the things that you said you would add? Is it a secret?
