"Let Them Be Wild" was named after a verse in the poem Inversnaid by Gerard Manley Hopkins.
This quilt was born as a political statement, a desire to inspire others to contemplate and honor
the wet and the wild, to preserve our oceans and the life within them.

Finally, I finished this quilt! Started it months ago and it sat on the back burner while I completed all the ones that went to Lowell Quilt Festival. This will be a Christmas gift for one of Bill's granddaughters. She's ten years old now.
I improvised my Free Motion Stitching as I went along. This is the quilt I broke a few needles on before I took my machine in for a tune up. I had some dings in the needle plate that I never even saw but they certainly did make a difference. It didn't help that one of those broken needles was stuck inside my machine somewhere! Of course, all of this threw the timing off as well. FMS on a domestic machine is about all the challenge I need for this century!
