This particular quilt was hard for me to make. I have long admired quilts that just stop in the middle of a block or pattern repeat. I always found myself curious as to why a quilter wouldn't finish the pattern. Did she run out of fabric? Did part of the quilt get damaged and simply cut off? Did it fit the bed so she stopped? Did she just get tired of it and wanted to move on to the next quilt?
Being the curious kind of person that I am, I decided I must see if I was capable of such a stunt. It was difficult. I played with the block arrangement. I made extra blocks just 'to see' how it would look. I even turned the quilt in every direction, but in the end, I decided to stick with my original plan.
Quitlting detail from the back. There is one leaf in each orange square.
When I was a young child and did something naughty, my mom would ask...Diane, why did you do that? I always replied with the same sincere answer...Just because (with a turn of the head of shrug of the shoulders.) Because sometimes, there are no good answers.
Enjoy every stitch!
