I know people say that they “love a challenge.” I’ve been guilty of it on occasion, but when it comes to tackling a very large modern quilt, I can’t say I LOVE that challenge. I love it once I figure out what I am going to do, but I’ll never fool you by saying inspiration comes fast! I stared at this quilt for a long time. It was king size. The top had been completed many, many years earlier (around 25) and the piecer was ready to get it all the way done. Once I decided on design, it was a joy to quilt. I love that she pieced it in the 1990’s and a modern quilter would piece it today. I felt responsibility towards quilting it in a timeless modern fashion. There was a lot of custom quilting done, but it proved to be worth every stitch.
