This king single sized quilt has just been quilted by a friend for me.

Inspired by Ricky Timms' convergance quilts, I pieced the background of curves, before cutting it into strips, and inserting a sequence of strips of this gorgeous Robert Haufman "Geisha" fabric.

I have to admit that it took a bit of courage to cut into the pieced background, not quite knowing how it would work out! vbg

I have included some of my dyed fabrics in the background, as the orange tones are Rita's favourite.

Happy birthday, Rita
