Third assignment -- almost done!

I thought I would be able to get my third quilt finished by the end of June but I need a couple more days. And I won't be back in the studio for three weeks, because I'm off to Europe -- where I will be visiting with Uta on the way to a family reunion.  But there's enough of it finished to show a picture.

The back story on this quilt is that a couple of years ago I made a quilt inspired by a photograph by somebody in my art book club.  You can read about it on my blog here and see a picture of the quilt.

I didn't think the quilt was worth finishing, but I loved the way the stripes worked together, especially the places where the regular pattern was interrupted and distorted.  Ever since I have been meaning to make another quilt to explore what can happen with stripes.

So this is what I have come up with, and best of all, I'm fulfilling the requirements of the challenge at the same time that I'm making something I have wanted to do for a long time.

When I get home and finish the quilt I'll post another photo.

  1. Dazzling! I'll be late with my assignment - but I know exactly what I will do once you're in Italy.
