Done

Another finish and I'm going to be kind to myself and not pick it apart. I started writing this by describing what I didn't like about my quilting on this top. But you know, it's done and it looks pretty good.

Pretty good is an understatement - it's GORGEOUS! You are way too hard on yourself. Your work is just amazing and you are so generous with sharing your techniques and patterns. Thank you.

It is wonderful. The pebbles really add great texture to the blocks and they definitely are not as easy as they look!

Mary: This is more than just pretty good--it is gorgeous! You are not the only one who saves leftover bindings! :) I do add them to my string blocks though. Anything to use them up.

"looks pretty good"??? It looks very, very good to me! I like the way the close background quilting makes the colorful blocks pop out. Very effective.

It's gorgeous Mary! You sound like me. Sometimes we are our own worst critic. =P Pat yourself on the back. Job well done!

I'm like Norma. Leftover pieces of binding are tossed in the string bin. Can't throw away anything....

Tanya said...

Ohh. It's so beautiful! So colorful! I love it! I cannot believe how many quilts you complete! Do you sleep? This one is again fantastic!

Jane Weston said...

It looks great. I love the way the links puff up. I think it's easy to be critical when we've worked on something so closely with intense attention to detail. Leave it on a chair and then come into the room catching sight of it from the corner of your eye then you'll see just what a beautiful job you've done.
Take care,
Jane
