It's SO cliche to say I love this quilt. So I won't. Much. Okay, I won't. You can say it for me, if you want.
Here's where you learn more about my quilting OCD. I absolutely will not make quilt blocks where directional fabrics, or patterned ones (plaids, stripes, etc.) will be pieced together and not match. Won't happen.
Hence the solid fabrics in each block. Solids and florals. None of the dots or stripes in this line (saved the red bias stripe for my binding!). Some of my favorite blocks:
The original pattern only called for 9 blocks. But since when did I make the "smaller" version of a quilt? Even though the original isn't all that small, I wanted it bigger. Plus, I couldn't narrow down my fabric choices. Probably more of that.
Quilted in loopdy-loops (hey, I'm REALLY good at them by now - only 1.5 hours to quilt!) and bound in red bias stripe. And ready for a wash, then on my bed.
