Brian's Quilt

 I've been working at this quilt for a while and now it is done and home with my friend Brian. I had such a good time making it, again it is inspired by the work of Anna Williams. Brian has lots of color in his home so I felt safe using bright colors. Most of the fabrics are from my plaids/stripes scraps. There are a few shirts too, along with a few strips of orange silk. The finished quilt measures 36" x 36" but notice it's not exactly square. I did that deliberately. Most of the center blocks measure roughly 5" x 6". Lori Kukuk quilting this for me using a wonderful ziggy pattern that works just right.
