Then you just rotate them to get the desired effect. The borders were also 3.5" wide. The king size quilt was 106" x 117", 9 blocks by 10 blocks. Thanks for your kind comments.Name:  Marimekko quilt 2.jpg

Size:  607.8 KBSome may remember back in 2010 I did a $120.00 DYI of my ugly kitchen until we could afford to have it totally redone.

    If you look closely, there are little "Day of the Dead" skulls on some of the black and white print. Lily's parents are amazing in SO many ways, but rather than go on and on, I will just tell

  6. Quasi-Crazy Quilt from Vintage Scraps and Embroidery

    This quilt will be donated to the Red Willow Bible Camp quilt auction fundraiser.
