This fabric feels retro to me anyway!

Pattern: Square Dance (Fabric Cafe) Uses 1 yard of each of 3 different fabrics.

Fabric: Moda, but not sure of name. It's main appeal was the $3.99 price tag at my LQS. It was on the promotional shelf so it was mine!

Size: 45X50 (or so)

Style: This is a "summer quilt" - no batting so the "quilting" is done just enough to secure the top to the backing when it's washed.

Backing/Binding: Walmart $5 sheet - brought around for the binding.

This was a UFO until I discovered it when I was digging for something else. My goal for the summer is to get rid of those UFOs and I'm making good progress!

(TRYING to add pictures, but keep getting the blue screen of death. It's coming ... eventually.)

5 1/2" block pieced - 5" block sewn.

I love these 3 yard patterns. When I want them bigger I just start adding borders from my stashlette. Didn't do that on this one - followed pattern exactly.

I was already thinking ahead to using more yardage for a larger one. I like the pattern and proportions, thus why I asked about your block sizes.

I've committed to doing a Passage Quilt, and this might be a good one for the one fabric I'd like to use from my stash. And no doubt I'llhave coordinating fabric that'd work with it. Bonus, for me, it'd be an easy one to quilt on my machine.

You mentioned other 3 yard patterns? Is there a source for these online? or just ones you've collected over the years?

Please? and Thanks!!!
(again!!)
