By popular demand (or at least requests by Frieda and Judy) I wrote up a little explanation of how I made "Under the Rainbow". It's on my website - here's the link.
Bonnie McCaffery did a great job capturing the flavor of the Houston International Quilt Festival this year. I was lucky enough to meet Bonnie, and you can see me in a brief interview towards the end of her vidcast. Thanks Bonnie!
I'll leave you with a view of our Japanese Maple from about a week ago.
