Thanks and a redesign…

Hi all…

Thank you so much for the generous offers of help so far; I have enough people for the income inequality dresdens and will be sending out individual info this coming week. So excited to see this one come together with prints from all over the place. Yay you!!!

And this afternoon I decided the Smart Is Beautiful quilt needed a bit of a redesign; it just wasn’t all that smart. So, I went back to the code well and messed about a bit and eventually tried it in binary and ended up much happier; it is both a better quilt and far geekier, which is almost always a good thing…

So, I’m still hoping for 16 volunteers, but now the applique is gone; simple rectangles and squares; each block is a binary translation of the letters in the quilt (SMART IS BEAUTIFUL) with the binary represented by the white squares (either up/down or left/right). And as I always say, if an idea can’t be done with simple shapes it probably needs to be rethought. I love it when I am right, and when I remember to take my own advice. Still hoping to do this one with solids, though. Sixteen takers out there??? Comment below if you are in and I will get info out once we hit critical mass. Please drop a comment here even if you have already done so on the previous post so I can keep things straight between the two quilts.

As always, thanks…

Best,
