Shocked, Shell Shocked!

This morning while drinking my first cup of coffee and reading the Quilt Show newsletter, I found a picture of my clam shell quilt blocks, Shell Shocked, in the "Design to Quilt: Principles of Design - Unity/Variety" article written by guest editor Laura Wasilowski. At first, I thought the quilt blocks just looked familiar (not enough coffee!) but then I recognized it as my quilt made in about 2012. Thanks for including it! Here's a photo of the completed quilt.

If anyone is still reading this blog, yes I realize its been several months since my last note. I'm still quilting but am often working on quilts which shouldn't be made public because they're gifts or they might be entered into a show. I plan to post monthly so look for something from me again in December!
Until next time, Mayleen

It is a wonderful quilt! The outside border fabric is a perfect frame. It will be grand to see a little more of you again!

What a nice surprise. Can you tell me the design source? a quilt with this design won the Vermont BOS and I've always wondered.
I'm Looking forward to more posts of your beautiful work
