  2. I like the bright colors and the abstract geometric patters. It looks like quite a bit of work to make those.

    1. Thanks, catsynth. I thought the geometrics might catch your eye! It truly is a lot of work, but I enjoy the process, and the finished product always makes me glad I made the sacrifice.

    1. Why thank you, Sirdar. It certainly is magic now seeing the finished quilt top. Now if I can just get the quilting done...
