I’ve also included a photo of my project (back and front).  I remember really liking this quilt because I spent so much time working on the gradual color change from dark to light.  Looking back on this project, I don’t think I’d do anything different if I were making it today, 10 years later.  It was a fun time, fun group, and fun project.

Here's Roxanne's quilt, and I have to agree with her. It is FABULOUS!
