I don't think that Michael sleeps. How else could he possibly make all these glorious quilt tops? Someday, I'm going to try my hand at paper piecing again, but I'm not quite there yet. I also won't start with something this complicated.
When Michael left the quilt with me he chose a very fine turquoise thread and told me to "Have fun" for the quilting design. So I did! Flames and fathers and what I call "Mimbari" Such fun to play with.
