I made this quilt in 2010 for a friend of mine when he retired.  We had worked together for over 12 years.  As you can see it is just lots and lots of 1 inch squares. There are over 5000 them in the main body of the quilt.  I hand-dyed many of the fabrics myself.  Others were dyed by friends and some were purchased.  The green fabric used in the border and on the backing was purchased.  This was the first time I had used a silk batting.  It gave the quilt a wonderful soft drape.
