I`ll tell you right away,because it is not the colour as you may think,that is just the light:
My LH was finished and up on the wall in August 2006, then taken down 3 1/2 years later! Among things I became very unhappy with green sashing around each of the blocks,my own choice at that time. It really bothered me,so I decided to redo the whole quilt. It is me there showing it very proudly(at that time)to my quilt group.
Using the seam riper very carefully,I undid the 9 blocks (I had originally quilted it in the ditch by my sewing machine and hand quilted in the stitchery parts). A bit of a job undoing it,I can tellyou,and it surely took a long time.
I decided to let the longarm quilter quilt it for me this time. Last Sunday it was up on the wall again,a lovely copy of Leanne`s quilt. So what did I learn? Yes, never to change a beautiful pattern.
End of story! I`m a very happy Quilt Lady :-)
