First, this one's for you, Colette . Sorry you had to miss this show--especially when it was held in your old neighborhood. I thought of you when I saw the "Golden Arches" landmark on the Lougheed and again inside when I saw this quilt.
This quilt would be great for using up leftover strips. The story that went with this quilt indicated that the scraps were cut 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" and then traded with three other ladies. All the scraps were then stuck in a bag and pulled out randomly and sewn together.
This quilt was a chevron which is great for using up scrap strips as well. The thing that really interested me about this one was the choice of quilting design used to finish it off. The quilting gives an optical illusion quality or secondary design to this quilt.
