The quilt is finished. I bought the block printed fabric in 1995 so this was a project that has been in the works for awhile but it came together quickly once it got started. Like many quilts, it evolved as it went along, somehow declaring itself and deciding what it wanted to be. I am not heavy into the spirit of bedding or personification of objects but it just seems to be the best way to describe the process. I stand back and look at what I am making, to think about what comes next, but I always want to call it listening.
