This is the quilt I was asked to help with. My friend bought the cheater panels and then decided she was in over her head.  I ended up making all of the blocks for it and returning it to her.  Then she took everything I did to her local guild for more help and somehow managed to talk the girls there into squaring the blocks, and even cutting the sashing and 'helping' her sew it all together into a top. She's very proud of the first quilt she's ever made!!  It'll be a gift for her brother this Christmas. I think it came out very well - in fact it's amazing - considering how many ladies pitched in and assisted with it, without knowing what she wanted. And would you believe the only things she bought were the moose panels and batting!?? We all somehow ended up donating the rest, along with our labor.  LOL

I had nothing to do with the layout. The gals in the guild did all of that.

She thought I was crazy for usinging red and orange on the blocks because there was none in her panels. She had it in her head that everything had to be matchy matchy...  Now she loves the red!

Cc I like how your blocks really make the the moose panels pop!  I hope your friend realizes what a gifted artist you are, and how lucky she is to know you!  Great work.
