I like the lines and proportions on this one for sure.

Looking forward to seeing it with the finish applied!

It looks awesome! My mother has gotten into quilting and would love something like this. I never thought about it before, but something like this would be a great Christmas present for her. Thanks for the idea. Would you be willing to share plans if you have them?
