Till We Meet Again,


  1. I can't believe I'm the first to comment on this beautiful quilt! Maybe you only just put it into the Festival today. Anyway, I love it!! The bright colours are so effective against the black background. The fabrics you've chosen are really appeal to me, and quilting is wonderful too. I thought the photos were taken in snow, but no, it's a beach. The dark colours of the quilt really stand out against the white of the sand.

  2. Love your quilt!!! Adore the black and brights and your quilting is FABULOUS!!! All-around gorgeous quilt!!!
