Several years ago, my friend (and former quilt shop owner) Mary gave me one of her old UFOs– a stack of hand-dyed fabrics that had been cut and partially assembled into pinwheels. Some of the rows had been put together already and all of the placements had apparently been determined for every piece of the quilt, so it was up to me to solve the puzzle and finish assembling it.
I did finally get it put together but it languished as an unquilted top for several more years, until I decided to just finish it already. During Lent, I layered it, and quilted it very simply last month.
This will go to my classroom since it’s a good example of a tessellation. And because sometimes I get cold in there.

I love how you are able to create extraordinarily intricate masterpieces as well as simply lovely works. This flexible genius impresses me. It encourages me to remain out of the box. Thanks for sharing.
Wow– what a lovely thing to say! Thank you so much, Susan!
It’s lovely and I’m sure will inspire many tessellation-related activities!
