I've spent a long time working on Spangled. I've procrastinated working on this quilt in every stage of it's being. Paper piecing the blocks - yes. Assembling the quilt top - yes. Quilting - yes. So now that it's finally done, I LOVE it!
The design of this quilt top morphed along it's journey into a surprise I certainly would not have come up with if I had worked on this quilt straight through from start to finish. Funny how that works out, huh?
I backed and bound this quilt with Joel Dewberry Modern Meadow.
I gave this quilt to my mother-in-law as a surprise. I have been meaning to make her a quilt for a long time, but her taste is more traditional. I wrestled with how to make her a quilt she would love, but also would be a quilt made in my style. I think this is perfectly it.
