My parts in the book were (i) to talk about my experiences at the Fat Quarterly London quilting retreats and (ii) to provide a project which could be done over a weekend retreat. So I decided on a quick, large scale lone star without too many pieces. Made with Oakshott Liparis and a text print, the quilt is called Lone Star Circle for obvious reasons. And here it is with Krista on her tour of the Northern Territories of Canada.
I have to say, as much as I love the original of this quilt (which is going to my accountant on its return, as a thank you for saving me from the purgatory that is my tax return), I think I love the mini Krista made from the pattern even more.
