    Thanks for showing this gallery of wonderfully inspiring quilts!
    I love them all and marvel at the intricacy of the piecing.
    I especially like your bold use of colour something which I often shy away from partly through inexperience and partly through fear of disharmony!?
    Having said that my first really scrappy quilt is multicoloured (everything and anything scraps!) and is brought into line by the use of a white centre in every block.
    When I read your blog about the way you construct the design of many of your quilts especially the medallion style-this is what I’ve learned-that you provide some order by repeating a similar colour (sometimes a hint of it) throughout the quilt.
    I remain in awe of your obvious use of math needed to contruct the quilts.

      What a lovely comment, and thank you so much! Yes, keep repeating colors and shapes, and make sure you include some decent contrast as well as repetition. That keeps it interesting! Thanks again.
