Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? -Marianne Williamson

Quilting: so here's the front and back of a quilt that I might be making for me. My sister likes the front but only because "it doesn't look like a quilt," i.e., it's not traditional. I designed the back with leftover fabric--it's a real attempt at design, color, and liberated quilting. It will finish at 84 X 84 once I figure out how to quilt it. hope you like it!
Ah! The ICE challenge was fabulous! I finished it just in time. The small dots are turquoise blue, green, and clear crystal embellishments. I learned a lot by forcing myself to try these 5 things: quilting with clear thread, metallic thread, raw-edge appliqué, stamping, and embellishing. I figured out what was niggling me--the wording--so I changed the last line to Spread My Wings and FLY Tonight. Thanks to all who responded--it was a consensus for 'wonky' wording placement. two pics: one of my quilt and then the table where others' ICE projects are shown.
