  1. That is awesome!

  2. It’s just Awesome how pretty this turned out. I love the Quilting you did on it. I’m amazed at how much quilts shrink just in the quilting. I’ve not measured after washing.

  9. Wow! That is a beautiful quilt. It reminds me of stained glass. It surprises me that it only took 3 hours to quilt…maybe that is typical for long-arm quilting. Anyway, nice finish!
