Christine said...

Lovely - such a happy quilt. It's going to look even more stunning when you quilt it.

Nancy said...

I can't imagine being able to create a quilt like this - and certainly not in this time frame! All I can say is "WOW, Lucy!". I'm looking forward to seeing it all quilted and bound. After I see Pim's quilt completed, of course! ;o) And do I see a crocus and some snowdrops pushing up in your garden? Come on spring!

Thimbleanna said...

Very nice Lucy! And boy, does it ever look different from a distance than up close. I wouldn't have guessed there was blue in it -- well done!

corry said...

It is fantastic Lucy, and it is done. I am still trying to finish mine. It just seems that something always seems to be coming up to prevent me from being able to sew. Maybe today. I hope that mine will be as beautiful as yours.

Marga said...

Te gek en zo snel, echt heel snel.
Vind hem super, dat een quilt van vierkantjes zo mooi kan zijn. Als je er naar kijkt word je er helemaal vrolijk van. (ik wel tenminste)

Jessica said...

It's gorgeous! The colors are delightful.

mary said...

Lucy,
What an inspiration for me to start mine! I rushed out and bought the magazine as soon as I saw the first picture of this quilt on your site. Unfortunately, mine will have to wait as I work on another quilt for MY son! Have a blessed weekend, and enjoy your new accomplishment!

Oh Lucy! It is lovely! This has never been one of my favorite patterns, but you and the other talented quilters making it are starting to convince me. Thank you for widening my perspective. It is truly striking seen from afar!! And if I might add up close your piecing is immaculate! u

Linda said...

Hi Lucy,
I've just discovered your blog (I was visiting Bonny's Blog and I was "directed" to yours)and I just wanted to say that your quilts are fabulous! The colors of your Mennonite Mosaic are great! I am from the Netherlands (my parents live in Haarlem) and I have been living in Chappaqua, NY for the past 2.5 years. I started quilting almost two years ago and I love it. I will be back soon on your blog! Regards, Linda

Nettie said...

Lucy, again, this is really lovely and you inspired me to try this, but i only made one medallion for a baby quilt, as didn't have enough fabrics. My colors etc are also not quite true to this pattern, but you can see it on my blog. Also loved working with such happy colors.

Karen Dianne Lee said...

Oh my! This is lovely. I'm a fan!

The wide, bright red border is so perfect. I love quilts made with a patchwork of little squares - beautiful!
