This quilt was an exercise in trying something new and different--mainly, using more negative space than I have before. And I didn't want it to be white space. I have plenty of white sashed quilts. So I actually bought some Kona light grey solid for this quilt.
I wasn't quite sure how it was going to turn out, but now that it is all completed I think that it might be one of my favorites. I love the wonky blocks, I love the wonky layout, and I love the backing fabric.
