Connected! Thank you for all the suggestions and positive comments. After seeing this name, it became so obvious to me – why didn’t I think of that? I like that it has a positive vibe. After having named this quilt, I was inspired to connect with friends near and far that I hadn’t communicated with most of this year. We have been staying close to home and realized how easy it is to totally disconnect. No more!
Of course, this quilt needed a backing. There was a ton of fabric left over and I know I won’t be using it for another quilt. The piecing began. At first I was going to design what really would have been another quilt. I had several blocks leftover and started with those. Then…I just pieced chunks namby pamby style. Am I crazy about the back? No. But once all is quilted I know I’ll be content with it. It does need a good pressing but since it will hang in the flimsy closet, I won’t do a great pressing job until it is headed to the long arm quilter.
All that fabric in the top and back and there’s still more! There’s one donut block leftover and lots of pieces. Some little, many a good size. Any takers? I’ll gladly send it all to someone who’d like it – just leave a note in the comments and be sure I can email you for your address. Sorry, US only. If there’s more than one, I’ll draw randomly.
Thank you again for your positive responses and helping me to name this quilt. I love hearing from readers!
