Congrats on a very deserved top 2 finish. What a beautiful quilt. I certainly would not call that an easy way out. It is absolutely over the moon. I have a question - you made two candle mats. That one is a strange looking candle - or is there a candle in the top of that wine looking bottle? lol I just had to kid you. It's great for a "wine" mat, too. I love your creativity and imagination. I always look forward to your blog. You have amazing projects and this is no exception. I look forward to seeing you in more hops. Thanks for participating, sharing your wonderful creations, and making me giggle with my weird sense of humor.
