I designed and made this in 2008/2009.
It was meant to be a quickie wedding gift for a co-worker. I let her choose colors - figuring that it might be a challenge to work in colors I didn't choose. She wanted brown, peach and yellow. I don't do brown. So...
I found a fabric that I could tolerate and then spent a great deal of time wondering what I would want to do with it. Somehow, it cried out to be turned into medallions. Once the first one was made I was hooked. I think they look like dream catchers, so adding the turquoise was an easy jump. The rest is history.
The problem with making a quilt that has been the result of inspiration is that it takes a very long time and is very difficult to hand over. She did get the quilt - before her first wedding anniversary - I'm not saying more than that.
This quilt taught me that I could take something that felt impossible and make it into something that was uniquely mine.
