I drafted up this quilt and put it together in one weekend and the following week I loaded it onto my long-arm quilter, Johnnie. It sat idle for the next 3-plus weeks. True…I’ve been very busy with the guilds, work, and teaching. I knew that I wanted some dense quilting in the negative spaces of the blocks, and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do in those areas. I would go in and stand and stare at the quilt for prolonged periods of time and no inspiration would come to me. I finally jumped in and just started trying things out. And, guess what? It’s finally done…and it’s huge! I couldn’t be happier with it!
