Debbie's Barrister's Blocks

I don't always get to see the quilts I work on totally FINISHED.  Their edges are ragged and raw when they leave me.  The extra batting on the sides is randomly decorated with scrap squares and thread tails where I've tested the tension.  It never fails to amaze me how that little sliver of fabric that binds a quilt can so dramatically change the appearance.
So it was a real treat to see Debbie's Barrister's Blocks quilt hanging at the 2010 Eastern Long Island Quilter's Guild quilt show ( http://www.eliqg.org/ ).  The jewel colored hand dyes are GORGEOUS, and well paired with the multiple shades of gray.  This one is also quilted with the pantograph Rhapsody by Jodi Beamish.
