I really think two projects tied for my favs this month. The first was the Improv Runner that I seriously thought was a fail mid-stream. I was pretty sure I'd made a huge mistake in my fabric choices, and nearly started over. But I forged ahead, finished the top, and it was when I began quilting that the runner began to come to life. Dense organic straight-line pulled everything together, especially when I thought to cross-hatch some sections. In the end, it wasn't easy to send off to the recipient.
And second was Spiraled, which I created out of discarded hst, truly not knowing what I was doing next until a next step was needed. After the first large spiral, I knew I needed more. And after loving the result of Terrain on white with Pearl gray sashing on my Sparkle quilt last winter, I decided to repeat the effect. On a whim, I took the spirals into the border and on out to the binding. Wicked fun.
