What a stunning quilt! Every time I check what's new on this forum, I get inspired. Maybe that's why I don't visit often, too many shiny objects. https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/wink.png

I like it! I like scrappy quilts but I struggle trying to make one, my brain grips tightly to the idea of continuity and colors needing to work together. I do however keep trying.

Very nice. I can understand why you waited to quilt it, the ever elusive design. I probably would have taken the easy way, stitch in the ditch.

I would enjoy seeing your quilt. I know what you mean about feeling sad now that it's done. Sadly I never met this grandmother but I certainly feel connected with her after this project.
