I’ve decided that I’m not going to make any more blocks for this quilt. I will add a border, not for size but because I think the design needs it.
I really like this top, but I’ve realized that it hasn’t “scratched the itch.” I’ve been asking myself why. I love the quilt shown below and bought this issue of American Patchwork and Quilting because this was on the cover. I rarely do that.
The pattern is available for purchase from their web site. I love the pattern, but even more, I love the color choices. For my version, I was using up some layer cakes and scraps and as long as it was civil war repros, I threw it in. It is a great top, but not the one in my mind’s eye.
I want to do this one again. Next time, I will use red, white, blue, black, and a handful of double pinks.
Have a great day!
