What a thrill! The journey from a small treasure found at the flea market to the cover of QUILTMAKER, MAY/JUNE 2012. This beauty caught my eye just because I appreciated the piece itself. Then things start to perculate in the mind, doodles on the graph paper, a really cool block (originially for a 100 Blocks entry) then into a really cool quilt. With or without the applique, it’s a good project. I can’t hardly describe the joy of this process of designing.
