Ellen was the best swap partner ever for going along with my 2fer idea. Her flower piece is very special because it really is solid fabric with incredible hand embroidery. Expand the picture and check it out.

What a great idea! Impossible to choose a favorite, as each has its own loveliness.

these are great! I love seeing the similarities and differences in them. I like the fact that you each chose to use colors for the white strips on the hills.

What a nice idea to do two each. The four quilts are magnificent and what a good idea to use Andy Goldworthy as an inspiration.
