The Quilt Show Puzzle: It's Twilight Time
"Twilight in the Bronx" by Teri Lucas

Wanting to make a Lone Star quilt, Teri drew out the "bone structure" for her quilt, Twilight in the Bronx, and did some trapunto work, sandwiched the quilt together, and then did the rest of the quilting. However, when all was said and done the quilting couldn't be seen because it was black on black. So what did Teri do? She ripped it all out and quilted it again!
