Truly, this quilt was an obsession for me.
I think part of the draw was the complete indulgence in scraps and little treasured pieces.
I also felt engaged in each section, and never went into auto-pilot mode, as you sometimes can on large projects.
And knowing I couldn't possibly give this one away, I used a large piece of two favorite prints for the back.
I also took some chances on the quilting, and knew I would still love it if it didn't work out just the way I wanted.
But it did.
I love this quilt, and I loved making it.
And I'll probably make another.
