At some point in my adult years I came to understand the truth of the statement "The obstacles in my path ARE my path." Periodically throughout my life I've been faced with obstacles and challenges that seemed to be diverting me from the path I wanted to follow. As I faced these challenges and found my way through the obstacles, they changed the me who I am... and became an integral part of my journey.This lesson was on my mind when I created this quilt, and so the quilt serves as a constant reminder to me that obstacles and challenges are to be welcomed -- they bring with them personal growth opportunities and new perspectives for me. I'm sure that reading this you will be recalling your own challenges and how they have shaped who you have become. What a gift it is to arrive at that understanding!As with most of my quilt kits, the fabrics used are a mix of textures so that the finished quilt has a tactile as well as visual interest. Always my fabrics are selected from lines that offer the best quality, so the finished quilt will last a lifetime. This quilt is mostly printed cottons, with some Essex linen (linen-cotton) blend and I think one batik! The kit includes all the fabric for the top and binding, and the pattern.When purchasing the kit you have the option of including the required backing fabric, either in light grey or medium grey. Both are beautiful and complement the quilt top perfectly.This project is suitable for both beginners and more experienced quilters. It is based on half-square triangles but I've written the cutting and sewing instructions so that you are sewing pairs of squares together and cutting them on the diagonal. This minimizes the time spent working with bias edges.The quilt finishes at 56" x 72". It will be fully machine washable and dryable when finished. I don't recommend washing the fabrics prior to piecing the quilt top.
