The Finishing March plays on; a post-manuscript-completing urge to complete something else. Namely quilt tops from the Past. This time the top was made in 1998.... Or, at least, as close as I can figure, it was 1998. And I may have this story totally tangled, but, as I remember it, here's how it came about: Judi Blaydon, a literary enthusiast, issued a challenge to retreat goers. Use a passage Judi chose from The War of the Roses, a novel by Warren Adler, as the creative springboard for a quilt.
Doing lots of fusing I made a small top, displayed it along with other challenge results at the retreat, and then put it away. But, when I came across it recently, I was happy to see it again and thought it deserved to be quilted.
I especially liked the positive/negative thorns.
And the yellow-green/green-blue/red combo holds up.
Another FO for our guild's mini-quilt auction, April 2012. Yea!
