Circles and Stripes Forever + Arrows 3, Pieced Cotton. 17 1/4" x 17 1/4" 1988. Some hand quilting; you may want to do more. After I made my first Circles and Stripes Forever quilt, I decided to make a more and call it a series. At the time, I took great satisfaction in challenging my piecing skills and doing things that were very hard. This little quilt was one of the hard ones. Although I was capable and I did like the results, I also learned that the degree of difficulty of a quilt was not necessarily a measure of it's visual success. Furthermore, using these kinds of quilts to promote classes often scared students away. I stopped using hard quilts to promote classes.
