Additional Comments:
DOUBLE-DOG DARE is an original design, challenging us to pause and reflect on the impact of our phones - how much we’re scrolling, comparing, maybe even avoiding - and to think about what we’re not doing - being present, interacting with our physical surroundings, and focusing on what's right in front of us. It's not just a dare, but a DOUBLE-DOG DARE (the stakes have been raised!). The non-traditional layout includes needle-turn hand appliqué, foundation paper piecing, and traditional piecing. The five bluebirds (considered harbingers of happiness) represent my growing-up family of five, and a time before 24/7 technology. The dog blocks represent the two dogs I've owned and loved, Kodiak and Georgia. The flower, sun, and flying geese blocks represent nature, and my belief that spending more time outdoors, away from technology, could do a world of good. Hey, we could always go outside and WALK OUR DOGS! Instagram (viewed sparingly!): huntingtonquiltdesign
