I've broken another rule!
I wrote to Don Henley (of The Eagles) requesting permission to use the title of a song that he wrote. It is for that challenge quilt. I kinda, sorta want to enter it into some quilt shows. I'm not going to wait any longer than Oct 1. In my head, I have already redesigned what I need to change so I have no copyright infringement. But really, that title and line from the song are the inspiration for the whole quilt. I guess I can put that the inspiration came from his song in the artist's statement.
So, to be able to finish the quilt I had to break another rule. I found a little quilt shop in Delaware that still had yardage of the polka dot fabric. It's an April Cornell line: Sonnet. Can you see the polka dot fabric in the center of the tin? I ordered another yard of the stuff and it came yesterday.
Here's what I plan to do. I am going to remove the 6" border that the letters are on on 3 sides of the quilt. This will also necessitate unstitching part of a hand on the central figure. Re-design by the seat of your pants. Not the first time, prolly won't be the last time.
