8 x 11
This lay unfinished, in pieces on my worktable, until last weekend because I was so unhappy with it, but then since I wasn't happy with the others either, I thought I'd finish it. So here it is. It looks much better finished, and I actually like the way I pieced in the diagonals. Also, it was good quilting practice. I wish I'd thought of the free-motion zig-zag for version two.

I'm cheating here. It's actually almost square, but it occurred to me that it would have been less boring if I had elongated the root. Through the wonders of Photoshop, I have done that. Except that the rocks are now oddly shaped, it looks better this way. I hope I can remember this technique in the future, not to use after the fact, but in the planning process.
So there you have all my dirty little secrets. April is truly the cruelest month. And to continue the T.S. Eliot theme, we're ending April not with a bang but a whimper.
