Acid Trip Quilt Top DONE!
It's too heavy to stay up on the design wall, so I have draped it over the table... which means you'll have to take my word for it that it's quite nice! Ha ha! However, I am too delighted to wait for a perfect picture to post. So here we have the Acid Trip quilt top, finished, pretending to be a tablecloth:
Now I need to have it quilted. I have decided that the black pieces need to be quilted with stripes that mimic the stripes they would have if they were pieced like the colorful ones. That means paying the long-armer to do custom quilting. So it will have to wait until I have more money! But it's ready to go as soon as my finances permit!

Ah, very nice and vivid. Is this one for Paul?
Yep! I took it to the long-armer yesterday; she really understood my larger design vision. We picked orange thread. She suggested quilting it with large X's and O's, to correspond to the X and O blocks, which makes more sense than my idea of doing the black in stripes and the colors in some other way. I am excited to see how her contribution finishes the project!
