It is absolutely awesome.

I went to the Keepsake website, found the kit and clicked around so I could see the Fassett fabrics they use in the kit. Drooled all over my keyboard.

But it is not for me at my decrepit state. Twenty years ago I would have been all over this thing as it would make a traffic-stopping wall hanging ...

I was thinking you made a Rose Window and I loved it.  If I'm remembering right about that, do you have a picture of it to refresh my memory?

You have a phenomenal memory!   Yes, I did, although it was a faux Rose window.  I had found a printed batik that was printed in a center medallion plus side panels.  The pattern that I used was "Garden Gate" by Patch Work Studios. 

Alas,  the company that sold that batik (Bold Over Batiks) no longer has a website (that I could find).   Further research revealed that Bold Over Batiks ceased business in 2012.

The pattern company's page for their stained glass patterns is here, although the Garden Gate pattern doesn't appear to be listed.

My webpage for my faux Rose Window is here

That's it!  I remember because it's one of my all-time favorites of yours.  It's such a pretty quilt!

So kind of you to say so!  I'm really chuckling because that quilt was **so much a fake quilt** that I felt guilty making it.  :-)   it was too easy.  It was also terminally boring: I machine zig-zagged all the raw edges of the black fabric.  Oh my lord, was that BORING.

But it did turn out so pretty. :-)   Thanks. :-)

I felt  that way after three rounds of zig zagging 'Miss MaryJane'....(my machine does not have a good satin stitch...sigh)
