Blowing in the Wind is finished!

I am so disappointed that I can't capture the colors and texture of this quilt in a photo. The colors are so vibrant in real life. They just pop from the background. I absolutely love this quilt. It's one of my favorites that I have made, and my daughter loves it too, which is really all that counts. This is the best photo I can come up with, and it truly doesn't do it justice. I can't wait to see it in their bedroom after they are finished painting and carpeting. Thanks for looking.

What a great quilt, Lois! I think you should teach it at our next quilt retreat so we'll know your secret for those straight lines. Everything you do is absolutely gorgeous!

That is a lovely quilt. I love how you kept your lines so straight. I gotta work on that.

That's a great piece of work. I can imagine the colors brighter as all my photos come off as dull, too. She'll always treasure it. Be sure to label it well for posterity because it's a "keeper".

I'm not usually a fan of modern quilts, but this one is just beautiful and it looks like you did a very good job on it, as well. Has oriental overtones.

Lovely. Your daughter is lucky to have this in her future. Be sure to get a picture when it is in it's new home. I am sure it will be perfect. An interesting pattern and more difficult to do then first glance makes it appear. Good job. TFS

I think this is the prettiest "all-solid fabrics" quilt that I've ever seen! Love the colors you used and the pattern is just great. I, too, would love to know how you kept that skinny line so straight!
