    I Did It Just By Looking At Picture-

    I saw a picture of a quilt kit in one of the quilting magazines. I really liked it and then I thought...I can make that...and so I did. Drew it out on graph paper and figured out how many squares and HST's I would need. Since I needed to make a baby (actually 1 year old) quilt anyway, I thought this would be bright and cheerful and still be able to be used as she grew up. Just have the top done today and will send to LAQ as soon as I get the backing cut out.

    Very bright and cheerful. Great for a 1 year old! Nice job.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Good for you! What a sense of accomplishment when you figure it out for yourself.

    "Piecin' a quilt's like livin' a life...The Lord sends us the pieces, but we can cut 'em out and put 'em together pretty much to suit ourselves, and there's a heap more in the cuttin' and the sewin' than there is in the caliker...I've had a heap of comfort all my life making quilts, and now in my old age I wouldn't take a fortune for them."

    Definitely show us the finished quilt when you get it back. You are one smart cookie to figure it. I've done that before and it can really work my brain! I love those colors.
