I am calling this one Drunk Driving

.... I think. The top is now completely pieced together. I have to do some trimming and I think I will add black around all the edges... or not...then it will be ready for quilting... the part I hate. I think I am going to quilt this in sections so maybe it won't be so stressful. I don't think I am going to do another one like this. Since none of it was really planned, I don't think I have the value variations required to not make it boring. I will see what happens when I quilt it. Sometimes these pieces grow on me. If nothing else, it has gotten me out of my slump.

Sherryl, you are too hard on yourself! This top is wonderful!! It really catches my eye...bright and happy!!

I like this very much. I have always loved bright quilts but until recently I thought I couldn't live with them. I can sometimes have problems with needing things to match (I have an accounting degree!). However, during the last year I have turned over a new leaf and now I am only drawn to bright, exciting, modern looking design. This is great and I hope you will eventually like it too.

How about a name like "winding roads" "country roads" or "down the beaten path" rather than drunk driving. Sorry, former cop here. Having cleaned up the aftermath of drunk driving, ("aftermath" is a polite term), I would suggest another name unless your quilt is supposed to make a point about the negative impact of drunk driving. Beautiful quilt.
