Large cuts of fabric were used for the "tiles" because I wanted to maximize the yardage of Pure Elements in cabernet that came with the scraps (cutting it less meant I had less of a chance of running out of it). Plus I was a little lazy.
This quilt is also the first completed project for the Finish-a-Long hosted by Quilter in the Gap. It's early days, but I think I may have aimed a little low for Q1. With one of three projects already finished in the first week of the quarter, I may be able to start a few projects to set myself up for Q2.
In the meantime, I'll be moving on to my next unfinished project, the Urban Chic quilt for Antonio, and hand-stitching the binding of a quilt made by a friend of mine.
