    I have to laugh! I bought this book and was motivated. . . back around 2007 and 2008. I made up my strips and cut and made up some blocks. Then I got called to do a week long sub for the high school librarian. I had retired in 2004. One of the girls loved quilting and I brought the patches in for her to lay out. She did a FABULOUS job. We numbered them so I'd know what to sew where and I packed it up for home.
    My next subbing job was a long term during which I met my DH. LSS, It has moved with me twice since then as I, then we, relocated. I finally got it together this winter and it's fabulous. I can't wait to do more. I had no problems to speak of so maybe you need an inspired teenager for encouragement or you should make this quilt and let it be a UFO for a while as it moves along! I used blues and yellows which worked well but your color choices are INSPIRED! What a knockout quilt!

    Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, For I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.

    Nice job
    It's a Margaret Miller pattern.
    I took the class with her years ago at Quilting by the Lake.
    She's a great teacher and alot of fun.
    If you get a chance to take a class with her - do.

    Because of the way it was layed out I had to be careful to get the right pieces that went together, which meant a lot of numbering and pinning. Plus after the blocks were cut I had to be careful not to distort them with all the bias edges. It was a lot of back and forth from the design wall and the sewing machine.

    Margaret Miller of the Seattle area wrote the book and introduced the pattern in the late 80s. I went to a workshop after she spoke at out Guild and made it as a begging quilter and several times since. I enjoy working with colors and this pattern blends and mixes so nicely. It is so easy to do but makes the quilter happy with the results. You did a beautiful job and wasn't it a fun one to make? Congratulations on a great happy quilt.
