    I really enjoyed this pattern. Easy and it whipped up quickly. Cutting 576 2" squares wasn't so fun! But it was a great way to use some of my scraps. I may even attempt to quilt it myself!

    Funky fabrics!

    That is such a cheerful quilt. Just looks like it's lying there waiting for someone to come along and lie down. Or maybe have a picnic. Great job. What kind of quilting do you envision for it?

    Chele, my mother did that quilt this summer but after she got going she didn't remember where she found the pattern so she didn't remember the name of it. I put a pic. of it on the board and when I opened this post I thought it was her quilt! She had the same coment about all those little squares.

    Nice quilt.

    Beautiful!
    I have this pattern marked in my book to do someday also!
    I love it even more now that I've seen yours. Way to go! Keep us posted on the quilting process. I'll be curious to see how you choose to quilt it.

    WOW, beautiful job! I really like how you used the white in the design and the red border was the perfect choice! :D :D :D

    And I was going to ask, but hit "enter" accidentally & it posted my comment...anyway, I say go for it! (on the quilting!) Do you think you will hand or machine quilt it? What do you have in mind for the quilting?

    Like everyone else, I love it and the scrappy look! Where ever did you find the patience to cut up that many squares?

    Thanks everyone for the comments! I had purchased about 200 of the 2" squares, so I only really cut 376! It seems like nothing now! LOL! I would love to have this quilted in a funky meander or puzzle design, but I'm too new for that. Any suggestions for quilting? Is my meander idea too busy for the business of the quilt? I'm still so green, I don't know what works.
