It's time!!!  Are you ready for some quilt yumminess throughout the quilt blogesphere?

Imagine is the name of the quilting bee circle I am a member of for do. Good Stitches.  

This is Imagination




 The quilt makes me think of philosophers, staring into the skies and seeing stars...imagining what life beyond is.

This quilt had many challenges and road blocks for me.  The original, Imagination post walks you through it all.  For the sake of the festival, I will keep it simple!!!

The blocks: 


The sashing....and a pretty cool shot of the quilting!

I loved this scrappy piano key border.

Scallops!




Simple backing for somewhat complicated quilting.

  13. Gorgeous! I love love love the quilting and you may have just solved a serious mental block for me on how to quilt the setting triangles of a quilt I'm "working" on. [Translation: staring at it trying to figure out how to finish it.]

    The photos of the back really show off the spectacular design. Thanks so much for sharing.
