I love your selection of colors for this quilt. It is beautiful! The quilting is some of the best I have seen. I have such a hard time selecting colors for quilts - I have not been doing this very long. Thank you for sharing your picture.

randall asked:
Is this good for a novice?
maxipad62 answered:
If you can sew a straight line then you can make this top. Read all instructions first and start with step one and just focus on that step then the rest just start to come easier. Never under estimate your capabilities.
