I learn from every quilt I make. I think of this quilt as my breakthrough quilt. This started out as a star of Bethlehem quilt. It looked boring. I wasn’t happy with how it was going. I cut up the parts I had finished, sewed on new portions, and scraps. Diamonds came alive. I feel like this is the quilt that opened my world. Some people find this to hard to look at. I see is energy, and fearless freedom.
Rex was wearing his fancy pants he bought while traveling in Asia. We were sitting around the fire when a cinder caught his pants on fire. Beers, friends, fancy pants, and a backyard fire made for many laughs. I thought his pants were black and white striped. In the dark of the night I could not tell that they were navy blue.
