Saved by Quilting


This is a quilt that I posted about earlier. I almost chucked it, but then I reconsidered, ripped it completely apart, bought more fabrics in more colors and put it back together. I added a fabulous print for the border and I still wasn't too happy with it....but I have to tell you that the quilting saved this one. My friend Donna quilted it for me and it is AMAZING! Can you see those windy waves? I love it! I don't think I will ever do that modern blocky thing again, but if for some reason I do I am going to have her quilt it....the quilting makes it.

VERY cool. I always want to do that cool block-y thing with a photo collage. Then, I get frustrated & delete it - so GOOD JOB!
