      Please give other stories, customs, or interesting information about this quilt:

      I chose this pattern to use small pieces of fabric and didn't have to match one wedge's seams to the adjoining one. This quilt took more planning to keep the colors consistent. I sewed these blocks onto newsprint paper in somewhat of a production line. Paper came from Weyerhauser end rolls. The paper sews up well and are easy to remove.
