The 'Building Bridges' quilt is done and it's getting a special quilting treatment. I'm going to keep it under wraps until its finished. Sorry about that. I will say that I took out all the color that I was going to put in. It's nothing but the bridges, stark, gray and I love it that way. There is a bit of color on the back, but that's it.
Oh and just in case you want to look, the 'Tipsy City' quilt from the book is on the cover of the Interweave Spring 2012 Retail Catalog. I love that quilt!
THE BRIDGE BUILDER
An old man, going a lone highway,
Came at the evening cold and gray,
To a chasm, vast and deep and wide,
Through which was flowing a sullen tide.
The old man crossed in the twilight dim-
That sullen stream had no fears for him;
But he turned, when he reached the other side,
And built a bridge to span the tide.
"Old man," said a fellow pilgrim near,
"You are wasting strength in building here.
Your journey will end with the ending day;
You never again must pass this way.
You have crossed the chasm, deep and wide,
Why build you the bridge at the eventide?"
The builder lifted his old gray head.
"Good friend, in the path I have come," he said,
"There followeth after me today
A youth whose feet must pass this way.
This chasm that has been naught to me
To that fair-haired youth may a pitfall be.
He, too, must cross in the twilight dim;
Good friend, I am building the bridge for him."
