Da--da! Finished. I made this quilt for a donation. It's rather cuddly, actually. If you squint your eyes a little, you'll be able to note that the light squares make a diagonal line across the quilt. That's what I like about this pattern the most. It requires the choosing of light and dark fabrics to achieve the effect. I still have another PhD to work on. (I learned this on the Internet the other day--instead of saying UFO, you say PhD (Project half done)). What am I getting my PhD in? textiles.
