So after due consideration, I decided to put this version away. With a little more quilting practice, it could be my contribution to the 2011auction. But in the meantime, on to Plan B.
Plan B is based on blocks like this. Does anyone know the name of this block? Something original, like 16-patch, perhaps? Anyway, I need 61 of them and they are going together splendidly. And the busy-ness will help hide any imperfections in the quilting.
I have to get back to work!
