Delurking to say: it's really cool to see different bloggers playing off each other's inspiration! Yours looks really neat by the way. You should also see the mini quilt chain reaction (not knitted :) ) recently on http://whipup.net/ .

That is my favorite of your swatches so far. The use of color is lovely, and the construction is very satisfying to look at. I'm enjoying looking at your creative work each day. Thanks!

I like the "fault-line" running all the way through the central panel. Very interesting, visually. With the strong border. Somehow satisfying. . . .

How's the KnitOff going?

Please tell me all your fabulous short-row garter stitch squares are being assembled into something - they are too cool to not use.

The colors, as usual, are really inspirational.

You're gonna get tired of my compliments, but I'm never gonna get tired of your creativity.

Best. Swatch. Ever.

(except there are some others of yours that are the best ever, too)

One of your best I think! Thanks for the link to Jane's site. I love her quilt, too. Really I just love color; I'm so glad humans can see color.

Have a great weekend!

Fabidilisious! I love the form of this log-cabin swatch nona. I think your style is moving onto another level. I can't wait to see your next short row example. :)
