I love it … although it is a bit blue. I do like the quilting design as it is clean and simple, and would be suitable to use with most of our modern waddings which are much less likely to fall to pieces inside a quilt than the waddings used a fifty to hundred years ago.
I would use less quilting in the border though.
Love the second one too, but some quilting in the border would be a good idea!
