    Pushing the Envelope

    A couple of months ago I posted a picture of this quilt top asking for ideas on a name. You gave me wonderful ideas and in the end I chose "Pushing the Envelope." It's a phrase my husband often used when he was working on the SR71. And it applies in this situation because this pattern and the colors are unlike anything I've ever done before. I thought you might enjoy seeing the finished product. It goes in the mail tomorrow heading to Topeka, Kansas!!

    The geometry combined with the color choices really draws my attention.
