"One Life" - finally complete

Sketch of initial idea

More detailed quilt map

Getting started

On a roll


Late one cold winter night, I finished the bottom portion of the quilt.

This is the point where I hit a creative block.  It took three failed attempts
to figure out how to finish off the remainder of the quilt.

 Taking inspiration from tilework under the eaves of Frank Lloyd Wright's Dana Thomas House, Springfield, IL, I've finally been able to move forward and much closer to finishing this piece!
  Almost there...

Eight months later...One Life (top only) - finally pieced!
Monday, July 29, 2013!  Next stop: hand-quilters.
