Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl ran a QAL for her Snowflake Shimmer quilt. I did some 'fancy' fussy cutting for my square in square blocks. I also downsized the quilt - these square in square blocks are 2 1/2 '' unfinished and the overall quilt is 18 x 22 ''.
Perhaps not the best quilty metaphor here, but I think of this quilt as keeping all the craziness in the world in check - hence the quilt name Calming Chaos. The gray surrounding each of the islands of chaos.
The quilting was a lot of fun. I went with straight line quilting and echoed around the shapes. I really liked the effect with the grid as lines intersected.
Thanks Yvonne for a fun QAL!
