    Thanks so much to all of you who helped me with figuring out what to do with this quilt. It is sent to a friend with neurological disorders. I used decorative stitches to brighten it up - varigated 12 wt thread.

    Album is Melanee

    All those flowers will surely brighten her days up and I love that fabric you used as a border. So pretty!

    Teri - go up to her post, click on her name, click on View Posts, then scroll down and click on her name again where it says albums. It should come up.

    That is absolutely beautiful. Congrats on a great job.

    I feel very honored that you all would say that I did a good job. It was very important and it was my first! I'll find the picture of the fabric on the back -- it has happy suns, frogs, dragonflies -- all with huge smiles! I was pleased to have been fortunate enough to find such unusual upbeat fabric!
    Thank you for your compliments. Its funny how we critique ourselves so "hard" and yet are amazed and awed by the work of others. At least that is what I do. I've got two more to finish this week for my parents anniversary celebration -- fly out on Friday. I gotta bust a move big time! It is very stressful for me -- I hate finishing things up at the last moment. I wish that I had been done a week ago!

    Anyway, I'll just pray a bit harder and see if miracles happen.

    Thank you all!!
