Congratulations! Great quilt, love the softness of the colours you choose. Any chance of some hints or a tutorial on how to keep improv piecing flat?

Congratulations. That is absolutely gorgeous. The use of pastels and neutrals over the the deeper and colourful solids rocks.

Whoa, I don't think I've ever seen an edgy pastel quilt before! This is incredibly gorgeous and sophisticated, and I'm thrilled to hear it got the recognition it deserved. Was the piecing horribly difficult?

Kollabora, the online crafting community I'm part of, recently added a quilting section, but there's not much in it yet, let alone many original designs. Can I persuade you to show this off over there? I really want my crafty friends to start using more pastels.
