My customer and I landed on this arrangement by accident, as I was rearranging the half square triangles for the umpteenth

This too, was a Quilt-Along here on the QB ... I joined the Ladies part way thru their journey, shortly after I joined the QB. When I read about it, it called to me repeatedly, until I decided to "start". You see, I too was a Farmer's Wife!

My husband looked at the cabling while I was quilting and watching the cords and moving them around and we got them placed to where it wouldn't do it. But every new time I go to use the machine, it does the same thing.

Even though I custom quilted this top I was able to quilt from inside the left border all the way across the top to just inside the right border. I used pink thread throught the body of the quilt and was amazed that it did not

She designed it, machine embroidered the flowers and I quilted. The quilt measures 78 x 99" and those little blocks are 1 1/2" square!!!! The batting is Warm and White and I used Metro Embroidery thread. The quilt is very pastel.....I had to enhance the colors so we could see the quilting.

It is not difficult to make but you do have to make sure the color choices/fabrics all match with the row ahead and beside it. I did not have anywhere to lay the quilt down comfortably so I really didn't enjoy making it as much as I do others. I took it away with me this past winter

I bought all they had, and will use it up this way.
I save my scraps but sometimes the scraps are really in strange shapes and sizes

Better yet, does anyone have one they'd like to sell? Thank you.
