I have my field of branded cattle and the big unbranded steer.  The lone dissenter in the sea of conformity.  Those were the thoughts I had beginning the process, but in the end it doesn't feel like a rebellious quilt. My quilting style is actually quite Maverick.  I don't follow any of the traditional rules or practices.  I approach the whole process backwards, starting with the the quilting, then adding color and finishing with the piecing.  I skipped the binding.  The whole thing isn't even square and I have loose threads hanging on the edges.  I'm sure I drive the quilt police crazy, or they don't even consider my work a quilt. Even with all that, I don't feel like a Maverick.  How could I feel like a loner with all the support of this group. See more on the blog.
