Thanks, everyone...this is on my own bed, liked it too much to sell or give away! Of course, every thing I do is "the best thing I've ever done", so on to the next project(s)....ha!

Love the contrasts! And the machine quilting filling in the negative spaces. Great quilt!

I love this for the title! (cracks me up) and the fabrics are beautiful. I would SO feel at home with this quilt! Nice job!

I absolutely love the contrast of everything on this quilt. The black narrow borders make it look a bit modern, but the fabrics have a vintage feel. A perfect mix of both. :)

Thanks, PokeyPine! Grandma still IS a hippie...I'm also that mixture of modern and vintage after all these years. Ha!
