The Oncology unit at my hospital had a great raffle - actually many raffles with big prizes like a new kayak, and an all expenses paid weekend on Monhegan Island. I wanted the quilt and even though many fantasies of me winning it were had, the quilt eluded me.
I decided to start my own new quilt and in the interest of ever getting it done will use the quilt as you go method.
I made my grandson a wonderful quilt (check it out) about 3 years ago called 20 moons. Each of the "moons" was quilted in a different quilt design, one being a spider web with it's own metallic thread spider. I will be using the same idea with the purple background and olive orbs. Not sure yet what the theme might be yet but I am in great need of a new quilt. So this is my start point complete with color catchers.
