It really is pretty, and you can't tell. I have taken a few more photos and done a few tweaks.
It has such dazzling glittery threads, that just don't show up in photos. To illustrate the differences

, there is so much beautiful fabric available, it's hard to control the urge to start a new project with every new wonderful fabric you see or buy. It reminds me of a 2 year old running from one toy to the next until he has emptied his whole toy box. I always feel that I'm 4 or 5 projects behind.

The minute I saw those photos, the first thing that popped into my mind was AN ART QUILT!!! .
I forgot to include the link to Karen’s website. She has a new book out, so you’ll really want that […]
