Want to see something very pretty? And Thank YOU!

HI everyone!! Please take a look! This quilt was done by my friend Joyce, in Arizona, her own design and execution. It is so pretty!! Joyce does not have a blog (yet...hee!), and I just had to share her quilt with you all. Joyce is a quilting superstar, designing and making her own quilts, winning huge competitions like national quilt shows...and then she took off and conquered the business world too!! We got to be friends due to this wonderful Internet thing...and I get to see beauties such as this one!! Aren't I lucky...and now you are too!!!



THANK YOU to everyone who helped me decide what fabric to use for the alternate squares from last post...I thought it would be easier with input, but I am even more conflicted, LOL!! Anyway, thank each of you so much for your help!

Have a great weekend!

Julie

I think it is hard since everyone has different tastes and colors that speak to them. When I am trying to decide, I go with what feels right to me. You are the one who will be staring at it, so it has to be a color you enjoy.

Your friend, Joyce, is very talented! That quilt is wonderful! I love anything string....and she put those stars together perfectly! They sizzle! Love the sashings, too!

Oh, your friend's quilt is beautiful - thank you for sharing.

I have a solution for you - just send the blocks to me and I'll take good care of them. teehee!

Nicky said...

Have you looked at your blocks in the photos? - that might help you decide which you like best. Or just do eeny, meeny if you are really stuck because I think it will be a great quilt whatever!

Beautiful quilt by your friend!

I like all the pieced sashings. It really adds to the design. Thank you for sharing your friend's quilt. More, please!

Julie,
I love your friend's quilt! Good luck on picking a color!

Lori said...

That is an amazing quilt!! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Pat said...

Your friend's quilt is beautiful! Now...as for your other quilt, choose the color that works for YOU, otherwise, if you choose something else, you will always wish you'd gone with your first choice! Too much work goes into something like that to not be totally happy with your choices in the end.

Before I started reading, I thought the quilt was an antique! I think Joyce has done a fabulous job, I love the blocks. She should definitely start her own blog LOL!
Regarding your choice of background fabric, just sit with it a while before making your decision, it'll all be good!!!
