    So many of you have privately messaged me asking about my quilt, that I thought I'd just post here and give you all the info they asked for. The pattern is Buggy Wheels and it was designed by the gals at Buggy Barn. I bought the bundle of fabric they offered in the April 2005 American Patchwork and Quilting magazine, which is the issue where the pattern was published also. If you want to make it, stock up on Thangles. They make piecing all those 1/2 square triangles so much easier and save on fabric too. I've attached some pictures you can see it closer for those of you who have requested this.

    Your quilt is beautiful, but I particularly love your hand-quilting! Thank you for the close-up photos.

    "Thangles" are pre-cut strips of paper that are marked with sewing and cutting lines for making 1/2 square triangles. Various quilting supply places sell them. I started writing a long explanation about how they work and then decided to check their website. They do a much better job than I do and they also have a video tutorial, so check there for a demonstration. I even learned how to do 1/4 square triangles too when I watched it. The biggest advantage to using them, besides the accuracy, is that you cut all your fabric strips the same width for squares, and all your triangles. No more 7/8th rule. Go to www.thangles.com and see for youself! (No, I don't work for the company. I'm just a satisfied customer.)

    Martha, your quilt is awesome! I don't even KNOW how to hand quilt! Beautiful! just a note on Thangles etc.............I use Brenda Hennings Triangulations CD and if you make a lot of HST and QST you may save money by not buying thangles papers. Just a thought. http://www.softexpressions.com/softw...angulation.php

    Absolutely gorgeous quilt. Love the pattern, the colors, the fabrics, the quilting - - everything. Now I want to make this one, too. Too little time, too many options. Can you tell me the finished size of the Buggy Wheel blocks?

    Gorgeous quilt!

    I'm a Triangulations fan... About $20 for the CD, but then you can print any size triangle needed (in 1/16th" increments). I print them onto $1 store doodle pads, which tear away easily.

    Congratulation. I love the pattern but was afraid to do the whole quilt so I just did two pillows.

    Beautiful hand quilting. I like the outside border quilting. Everything about it is beautiful. Do you quilt in a frame, hoop, etc? How long did it take you to quilt it?

    Your quilt is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for adding pictures of your quilting. I love to see the finished quilt with the quilting. It helps me with ideas for mine. Does anyone else also look for the quilting?
