This was supposed to be the Candy is Dandy pattern by Allison Quilt Designs. When I made the pattern per the instructions and put it up on my design wall it just looked like a big chatoic mess. After  numereous consultations with my husband while trying different layouts we finally decided it looked better the more I removed the light blocks, and the
more I integrated the different value blocks together. I feel the day ending in the forest, the light fading, the water dripping, and night softly falling.

Very amazing!  I love the way the light seems to come from the center of the quilt.  You have a very good eye for color, and a LOT of patience.

This is gorgeous!  It reminds me of a stained glass window.  Your placement of lights and darks is terrific.

Thanks for all the kind comments. The quilt looks so much prettier in person. I had a hard time getting a good photograph with all the deep darks that I used. There is a big stack of discarded blocks from all the layouts I tried that didn't work.
