Nesting Squares Quilt and a Book Signing

This might be my very favorite quilt from Improvising Tradition.  Don't tell the others.  I just love the simplicity of the design, which is really just a basic log cabin construction, and the subtle complexity added by the strata.  The quilt is made up of hundreds of pieces, sewn improvisationally into strata.  Color placement and careful value selection create the nesting squares effect.

Come see this quilt and others in person, tonight at 7pm at the Roeland Park Community Center for the December meeting of the KCMQG.  Several other local authors will speak about their books and show projects as well.  You can purchase a copy or bring one from home to be signed.  Hope to see you there!

Or, you may purchase a signed copy from my etsy shop for $30 including shipping (for US residents).  I'm happy to personalize your copy.

I absolutely love this quilt. It's like water in a clear pool. Brilliant display.
