On a scale marked "zero to delayed," this quilt is an astonishing number of years overdue. Some number of years ago, I gave Octopus' Garden to my then-coworker Sam's firstborn. When his second child, Olivia, was born, I asked him what they'd want for a quilt for her. Noah and I had just gotten back from our trip to China, and Sam's response threw me: "Tell me the story of your China trip in fabric."

Along the way, it led to Chaos Theory, a quilt for Earl and Lynette, based on the tessellation origami that Andy, a friend of theirs, had given them as a wedding present:

Sea Shanty is the third in a series of (I think) four Pride-themed quilts I'm planning to execute. It won't be as brassy or bold as its cousins, Queer as Fuck and This Heart Fights The Good Fight, but it's for another friend who finds comfort and meaning in the idea of owning a Pride-themed quilt.
