The pictures don't do it justice. It was beautiful Michelle, so glad I was able to see it and photograph it. Thanks Renata for posting it for me.

My sister went to the New England Quilt Festival this year. I asked her for photos of Michelle's quilt and here it is. Soo so beautiful and even more so if you saw it in person (wish I had been there!) :D I know you've seen photos of it before, but who would not want to see it again!? :D

Okay - I absolutely love what everyone else sees - it's great, we're all different and special, and it's what makes the world go 'round.
I see over-the-top gaudy, loud eccentric drag queen costume, and bright Hollywood. And Janet sees "lovely".
I see fish bones and Margo sees fringe.
I see big industrial rivets like the whole quilt is bolted together and Susan sees moons above the trees. <-- This one is really special. It made my morning.
I love it!!! Thanks everyone!
This pics were each like 3 Megs or more, 3,000 x 3,000. But TQS adjusted them down to what looks like a max 1,200 per side - they both ended up 1200x900. I think this is much larger than what we can put in our profile or blogs.
And one of the things I learned working on The Learning Quilt was how to use my machine's button stitch. With metallic thread. I broke a few buttons. And some metallic thread.

Keith,
Truly " jaw dropping". I spied the buttons in earlier pics. Did you hand sew or machine them on?
Love the trees too. Thanks for sharing.

That part looks like a moon above every tree. And what a treat to be able to see the fabrics by the double click.
Keith, how big are these pictures? Maybe we should all try this size pic for viewing special details.

Aw Keith thanks so much for the closeups. :D Kudos for all those perfect little circles. You must have the patience of a saint (as my mother would say.) I agree with Margo about the feathers, they are very special. And every single button is positioned perfectly! What are you going to do with 114 spare pink buttons???

Now for my next wish.... :lol:
