Sketchbook 2012: Day/Night Quilt

I had so much fun with my Millennium Quilt series that I raced right into this quilt concept for a friend's impending baby.

I began cutting and piecing not long after finishing the sketch, though it was almost another year before I completed the quilt proper.

At one point, I was so enamored with the finished sections of the quilt that I decided to turn one of them back into 2-dimensional art. I'll post pictures of that piece next week.

Here are pictures of the near-completed quilt in my studio (I just love the morning light in here):
