Veggie Dye - Done

I still haven't come up with a name for this quilt other than "Vegetable Dye" in honor of the fabric printing process.  The fabrics remind me of India-import bedspreads one used to find at Pier One type stores back in the day.  I've blogged about the fabrics and the quilt pattern here and here.  My one regret with this quilt is that I didn't make it bigger.  I thought about taking it apart and adding more blocks, but that just interferes with my Finish the UFOs Program!

Since the quilt has such a 60s vibe, one idea I've entertained for quilting involves creating long strands of quilted "beads" on the quilt - like beads one would hang across a doorway.  We'll see what Cindy, my longarm quilter thinks of that!
