    Just finished a really different quilt!

    This is a pattern called Two Left Feet from a book called Dare to Be Square Quilting by Boo Davis. It is my 36th quilt and, by far, the least traditional, but I really like it. I have a great deal of trouble selecting fabric and liking a quilt when I am finished. I liked this one all the way, though it was a lot of work and I won't make another one.

    Thanks. This is the first time I have quilted anything other than SID. I am really fairly new to this...a two year experienced newbie.

    Love it! Everything about this is great, especially the quilting design. I must remember it.

    Might have been a pain but you did a nice job. It is always good to challenge ourselves. My Dad says it keeps us young. He's 85.

    Thanks, folks. (It did take a big design wall, as it is made of 20 blocks, no two the same. My design wall was almost big enough. )
