Well, I just finished my latest quilt. A 66"x 66" lap quilt for my
wife; (the self professed quilting widow). I think it is my best
effort to date. Hope you like it.

Oh that is so pretty, I just love the use of the colors here and the
layout.

John, You do excellent work, hope your quilting widow enjoys it, it
beats being a football widow, at least you have something to show for
your time.

Actually she is my biggest fan. Very supportive. We went to the store
and she helped pick out the colors so that she would get something
that she could feel a part of. I didn't try to steer her in any
particular direction as to colors. When we came to a decision, I
deferred to her choices and she is very happy with it. It was fun to
make and I probably will do others of that design. It was done in a
marathon endeavor over the course of 1 week. She said I should get the
all time speed award.
Not sure about that. Fun.

Beautiful, John. Lovely colors and layout. I just wish I could finish
things as fast as you do. "Quilting widow" indeed. She could do what my DH
is doing, and set up her own space for sewing. He made ascot-like things
yesterday, for the American Legion Riders group he belongs to.

Wow, John, that's gorgeous. I'm curious. I notice that your center
sashings are a little wider than the others. Were you following a pattern
or was this a design element that seemed like a good idea on your own?
Never saw that before (of course, there's lots I've never seen) but it looks
wonderful. Polly

Really beautiful John. I shared it with my DH and he thought you did a great
job too.

Beautiful...... just beautiful. I can't believe how quickly you're
getting your quilts done! Weren't you the one that said he was ready for
a "break" a few weeks ago? :-

I *love* this one! I like the way you have a wider sashing in the centre!
