Seven or eight years ago, I saw a quilt that totally intrigued me in terms of construction. I wanted to try it, but my brain was too busy with New York Beauty designs back then. I've thought of that quilt many times over the years and told myself someday I *would* do it. So I did. This is NOT something I designed; it was a quilt from Anthology Fabrics, and the pattern was developed by Country Lady Quilt Shop in Roseburg, Oregon. Frankly, I think it's brilliant. No doubt the shop can steer you in the right direction for a pattern if you are interested. I have made mine from beautiful Hoffman Fabrics batiks. The layout starts out plain enough, with the darks and lights arranged diagonally opposite each other.
