    I just stumbled into your blog and have to say congratulations on creating a beautiful Plain Spoken quilt. When we wrote The Modern Quilt Workshop we had no idea just how exciting it would be to see the dozens of inspiring creations people made. I think your colorwork is wonderful.

    Best wishes with your future quilts,
