This is my entry for the BQF. I love this quilt because it was the first one I completed start to finish without months of breaks in between. Since I made this quilt in January of this year I have been sewing continuously without long breaks in between projects.
I have met friends, completed a lot of projects, and have reclaimed my passion for the art form because of this quilt. This quilt is unlike any quilt I have done before or since in that it is put together in strips, one strip at a time to makes the design, requiring lots of planning that I usually don't do.
This one is also hand quilted.
I should plan more when I do layouts and designs. I have always admired the rainbow quilts and the warm cool quilts, just because you know what it will look like before you make it. I sort of just go with it and every time I finish a top it's a surprise to me.
Maybe I like it that way...Maybe I should plan one and see if I like it better that way. We will see.
