    A fellow guild member is a retired art/quilt teacher and he speaks to quilt guilds and groups about quilting from time to time. He asked if I would create a smallish (about 2' x 3') quilt for him to use with his collection when speaking to guilds. So, firstly, I'm honored! :) He told me to do whatever design I wanted and has given me free reign on the design of it. Below is a pic of the design I came up with, which is basically a 9-patch block with HSTs on 2 corners of each block to create the blocks on point. At first glance, it's a complex looking quilt but is actually quite simple if you look at the 9-patch block pattern -- so that's what I was wanting to get across with this, that you can create intricate looking patterns with simple blocks based on the color placement. The quilt will be about 21.5" x 27.5", and the 9-patch blocks will be 3" square so each individual square will be 1" finished size. What do you think?

    Wow Eddie, It is beautiful, and will convey just what you said: Complex to look at, but relatively easy to do. What a great honor to be asked, but you do such lovely work. Thank you, I have learned a lot from reading your posts. How goes the CW stained glass?
    Blessings, Spring
