I need to enlarge my original design to queen size so I’ve been playing with borders. The instructions do not include either of these versions but I wanted to share the ideas I’m playing with. I used the 2nd design for Adam’s wedding quilt.

    Do you have sizes and a supply list for this quilt? I really love what you’ve been doing on it and have decided it’s perfect for my mother-in-law. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. If you said sizes and yardage on your blog for this forgive me but I don’t remember.

    This quilt is so beautiful. It looks so complex but has very simple building blocks. Thanks for sharing your creativity with all of us. I enjoy visiting your site for inspiration and quick ideas.

    This quilt is gorgeous. I’ve been looking for ideas for a raspberry and chocolate quilt with an off-white (vanilla) background and this is perfect. Thanks so much for sharing it with everyone.

    I just found you! And, I love your projects. I originally was looking for information on the Heartstrings project but ended up dominating the computer this evening looking at all your quilts and patterns. I especially love this one, in pink and brown…and guess what, I have a couple hundred HST already made in the right size in a bin from a project I lost interest in…it was pretty but too boring to work on. Now this one caught my eye and I may just dig them out. I LOVE it when that happens. Thanks!!!

    Thank you so much for all the wonderful patterns. I just found this and I am in love, going to start cutting squares in the morning. I am still new to quilting, and I really appreciate the great instructions!! Thank you, and God Bless!!

    Mary, I’m a beginner quilter and your generosity with your
    patterns is something I appreciate.
    This quilt is a definite “must make for me”
    Thank you!
