Inspired by the La Passacaglia Quilt from the book Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein, Ann Gonzalez couldn't bear to cut away the finished blocks to square up her quilt, Daddy's Delight, as the pattern instructed. So she instead hand appliquéd it to the background fabrics and added additional floating stars.

Daddy's Delight by Ann Gonzalez of Surprise, Arizona was featured in the Balanced Piecing and Appliqué category at Houston 2019.
