Well, if the quilt maker's source was Tic-Tac-Toe, the "X's" have it!

Using some traditional design elements, primarily appliquéd "berries,"  s/he created a quilt wholly her own ... and one I won't soon forget.   I'll bet one of you out there will compute just how many of those appliquéd circles s/he hand sewed.

S/he's left us a mystery in those unique corners ~ the edgy blue arrows directing the eye into the softer center. One person thought they may have been added to cover an error, or stain.  But my favorite suggestion was from a guy who said, "Those blues are her ideas!"

Cottons, entirely hand made, and finely hand quilted.
