Last Quilt Finish of 2011

I put the binding on my last finish of 2011 this morning.  This poor Split 4-Patch has been waiting since before Thanksgiving for its binding and I thought it deserved to be done this year!

And since this is the last day of the Year, I’ll leave you with this quote from Sark:
“Invent your world.  Surround yourself with people, color, sounds and work that nourish you.”

That pretty much sums up what quilters cherish.  To inspire your creativity and love of color, here is a picture of a unique geological phenomenon called Danxia landform.
Click to enlarge - it's amazing!
This one is in Zhangye, Province of Gansu, in China.  The color is the result of an accumulation from millions of years of red sandstone and other rocks.  Can’t you see a gorgeous quilt?  Maybe in batiks?  There’s certainly inspiration everywhere in this gorgeous world!
