"Pushing Boundaries" by Becky Goldsmith was created when she ran out of things to sew.

What Becky wanted to accomplish with this quilt, and wants to revisit in a future one, is the idea that when you make a vine design it normally is carried seamlessly from panel to panel but for this quilt the vines would not meet up perfectly and create an off-kilter look. This fractured nature allowed the quilt to be created square by square instead of having a need to focus on the center.
As Becky puts it, "In Pushing Boundaries, I 'pushed' the edges of blocks and messed with the continuous flow of the appliquéd vines. The blocks are square-ish and wonky, the applique intentionally does not meet up exactly from block-to-block."
