In November 2008, Friendship Star Quilt Guild sponsored a class from Jennie Rayment titled Tinkering with Texture. I barely finished this piece in time to submit it in our annual quilt show. I couldn't think of a name for it, so I relied on one of my fallback naming systems. I named this one after one of my favorite cartoon characters: Boris Badinov (the short soviet spy in Rocky and Bullwinkle). But, instead of just using his name, I called it Boris Bad Enough. Why did I pick him? Well, I had just retired from working at an Agency where I belonged to a quilt guild named Undercover Quilters. Having worked there for 37 years including durng the "Cold War", it just seemed fitting to pick Boris.
