I actually had a chance to take a one day class with Toby Litscho and this was the result of that class. The border, although complicated looking, is simply a large stripe fabric. I just love the color and play in this quilt design. Toby is big on curved piecing and accuracy. For me, the hardest thing about finishing this project was getting up the skill and the nerve to do the free hand feathering to complete the quilting. I finished the top in August/September 2010 and didn't get the quilting done until 2011.
