Journeys end in lovers meeting
(39 x 52 inches)
- O mistress mine! Where are you roaming?
- O! stay and hear; your true love’s coming
- That can sing both high and low
- Trip no further pretty sweeting
- Journeys end in lovers meeting
- Every wise man’s son doth know
(Shakespeare, Twelfth Night)

Nine girls a dancing
(40 x 53 inches)
This quilt is really just an experiment.
Normally my background materials are calm and plain.
Here I have tried the effect of a strongly patterned background -
and the motion in its leafy fronds set my girls a dancing.
