    And it left a trail!! :mrgreen:

    This is my new "Going Green" quilt that will be a queen size before it is over with I think. :roll: I will know more after I have put some more of these blocks together.

    This will be one that I will sell when my GD and I do the bazaar in a few months. This quilt was made from some king size flat sheets I picked up at the thrift store for like $2.50 for the pair. I need to go grab some thread tomorrow because I am going to run out of the color I am using to piece it up with but I should have no more than $8 to $10 in this quilt after I finish it.

    But here is one of the blocks and it was sewn on my 1948 Universal 15 that is in my studios treadle.

    I love this quilt pattern. I got a block like this in fall colors in a swap and keep thinking I will do a scrappy one since I won't be able to get more or even enough of that same fabric. Can't wait to see pictures. Can't wait to get to mine one day. It's on the list.

    I love the block also, it is going to be hard to let this one go but I will. The block measures 12.5 x 12.5 and I squared each time I added to make a bigger size. This is not the simplest block to do but the finished product will be fabulous!!

    Billy, that is going to be gorgeous. Has your GD ever talked you out of a quilt? This might be the one she wants really bad Grandpa! Bet you couldn't say NO, could you?

    This was one of the first patterns I made and it lives on the back of the recliner, gets used all through the cooler months. I wish I had not run the pattern all of the way out to the edges, the design just twirls off the quilt. If I were to make another I would do the outer trails all in the same color to contain the design.
