Love the Lovelorn Quilt, BUT, can't see it. I believe this would be beautiful and a great challenge to make. Where can you purchase the material, if still available. Can you reprint the pic? Thanks, E

I would love to see a better picture of this quilt. It is hard to tell how it goes together. What does the design look like? I like the fabric from what I can see.

One of my favorites, which I intend to make in the near future in pastels of yellow, mauve, red, orange, tan, brown for fall.

from the small picture of this crumpled quilt it is impossible to tell if I would like to do it or not.
