I finally finished (bound and quilted) my Fat Quarterly Quilt-A-Long Quilt. As I mentioned before, I have somewhat modified the pattern. After I sewed up all of my strips (of course I didn't entirely pay attention to the quilt-a-long instructions ( I am a terrible listener... )) I ended up with many more color-white-color strips than I had solid pieces to sandwich with - hope this makes sense. SO I ended up alternating every other 'box' block with a 'cross' block. Ehh... It worked for me :) I am counting this as my first quilt finish of 2011 (with The Postage Stamp as my second.... when I get it back from the long-arm quilter and I bind it).
Here is my modified version below:
|I love Nicey Jane!! I didn't use any of the pink - but that is definately my favorite.|
|Can you find what I wrote in the border?|
|See where I modified the pattern? I went with a 'cross' every other 'box' block.|
Thank-you online quilting blogs and flicker. Today I am incredibly thankful for you. xoxoxo
