I've surprised myself

and I can't stop looking at it.


Crap photo - sorry.  The light wasn't very good.

Thank you so much Tonya for your last minute advice.  You helped me make my mind up and The Young One says why didn't you say something earlier!!!!

Stunning! I love the play of brights across it. It's like streaks of sunlight.

OK, you win...you finished first! I am still in indecision mode on the border (seems like that is a stumbling point for many of us!)

Love how this one came out...ideas on how you are going to quilt it?

.What a dazzler, I went and looked at the link you posted about the Brown collection, lots of inspiration there. The thinner borders and then the big black one really set off the middle bits....very well done!
