My first quilt was done at a beginner class at my LQS. Everyone was supposed to bring a set of Layer Cake squares. I didn't even know what that was so I cut squares from some Civil War colors I had. One lady had Christmas colors, another children print with primary colors, one had fall colors. I took pics because not one of the 8 quilts could I tell had come from the same D9P pattern! Some turned the squares so they sort of made a repetitive pattern, others, like mine, were random. Every one was awesome! On some quilts, the pattern is the feature, on others it sort of just makes the colors the shining stars! Re-use, re-cycle, we are saving our planet!
