Retired But Not Retiring

I designed this quilt for my brother John and his wife Barb, when they announced their retirements and the big move from Toronto to Goderich. Its made of hand died fabric and is my original design. Its a bed quilt and is perfectly square - but its hard to get it to hang straight on a skinny metal pole! Click through to see more detail photos. Or check my Blog as I may post more photos there.

There are so many things to look at. Who says you always have to have a focal point??
