A Quilt With No Name

I'm very happy with how this quilt turned out.  The blocks were from a swap that we did quite some time ago.  Some of the blocks came from quilters in England, and most of them came from people in other states.  I love brown and aqua together.  I'm delighted with Mary Ellen's quilting -- I'm hoping that if you click on the photo you can enlarge it and see the meander interspersed with perfect stars that she quilted; they show up best on the border.

This quilt goes to Tom and Anastasia.  They need a gift for some special friends of theirs and they picked this top before it was quilted.

I think that Blackberry likes it, too, even though brown and aqua are not really his colors.

mmmm, I LOVE these colors together. and I think they ARE blackberry's colors, the brown matches the little brown spots he has over his eyes.

The quilting turned out wonderfully! Thius is indeed a stunning quilt. You need to make another in this color combo -- it is your very own color wave.
