It is a beautiful quilt! Who needs more than two colors when you can design like this? The quilting is wonderful and the piecing is so crisp. Is that rick rack I see?

This is stunning. At first I thought the blue and white was a fabric. Then on close-up I saw that it was pieced. It's just wonderful!

Wow--what a beautiful piece. I would like to know how she pieced the ring sections--and what the inspiration was for those designs. When I first looked, I thought it was a single piece of fabric--until the close-ups. I think that is rick-rack edging---a perfect touch. Wish I could say I am finishing everything I start---but working on it---an admirable goal.
