    This is the main part of a quilt for the double bed in our son's guest bedroom. I made the Shoo Fly blocks oversized, then cut them down at an angle to make them 'dance'.

    I'm going to do a modified quilt as you go by sandwiching and quilting this part, then doing the other parts separately and putting them together at the end.

    What do you think?

    I love the movement in the blocks. Looks like the blocks are wiggling back and forth.

    The dance movement makes it "happy". I usually see happy quilts as bright but you really made this one do a "happy dance"!
