This quilt just came off the long arm. Still needs binding, but even more than that, it needs a name. I've done much denser quilting on this than on any previous quilt. I think "long arm fever" took over me for a while :) With the really dense quilting, it's not exactly a cuddly quilt right now. A trip through the washer should fix that right up, though.
I knew when I was loading it that this quilt needed a design in each block that would help accentuate the layers in the quilt design. I ended up with a sunburst pattern, I think driven by the yellow center of the blocks. Each sun is cropped where it intersects with the block that sits on "top" of it.
colour palette challenge back in April. However, as I took the quilt off the frame today, this block caught my eye, and it said "House of the Rising Sun". So, help me choose. Which name do you like best - or suggest a new one.
