    This is my newest finished quilt! It's made with charm squares. The method I used to make the 4-patch blocks resulted in 2 identical blocks. So what I did was set them on opposite sides of the quilt. My abstract idea is that the center line is a mirror, and so it's projecting one side onto its reflection, which is exactly in reverse.

    Oh, and I quilted on this in red. Usually I try to hide my quilting, so this was a big deal for me to relax enough to quilt with bright red thread on the white border. I love how it came out though :D

    This is a really cool quilt! I like the randomness, but also the fact that it's a reflection.

    Thank you! Relaxing and randomly attaching squares without any concern for the finished look (minus the reflection) was also a challenge for my obsessive nature :mrgreen:.
