    "Back And Forth" Top Is Done

    This worked up really quickly. I think I am in love with this pattern. I'm sure I will be doing another one soon. There is one little mistake (sort of). In the second column about halfway down, there are two green with leaves that are close to each other. I try really hard not to do that, but I always seem to manage at least one. Oh well.

    This top will be taking a trip to Indiana soon to "visit" Harriet's long arm machine.

    I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out. Lovely quilt. I love batiks.

    Very pretty. I still couldn't find it. Don't know if this would help you but it does me. A quilt like that I would mark with Crayola Washable Markers numbering each block and each row. Although my blocks are usually bigger.

    Looks like fun and quick. We seem to critique our own work harder than we do others.

    Don't be so hard on yourself. It's gorgeous! The only thing that makes me get out my ripper is if two identical fabrics are next to each other, joining or touching. Beautiful batiks!

    Liking your colorful quilt. I like that pattern and can see that you could cut scraps as you cut for ongoing quilts. Kinda like doing leaders and enders.

    Great quilt...we probably wouldn’t have noticed the two green prints if you hadn’t pointed them out. LOL
    Looks like a great pattern to have in your library.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Thanks for all the nice comments. Yours is gorgeous Linda. I bet your grand-daughter loved it!

    I cut my pieces 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. There were a bunch cut that size from another project and I was able to use up many of them before diving into my stash.

    I love this quilt, Boston! I still can't find the "mistake."

    Linda, I love yours also. Both are so colorful and cheery!

    Such a beautiful quilt and I didn't even see the two fabrics that you are worried about being together. Not noticeable at all. You make such gorgeous quilts.

    If you hadn't pointed them out . . .
    Honestly, I can look at my own quilts a hundred times on the wall and think I've got everything laid out perfectly but when it's all sewn together the two colors that shouldn't be next to each other always are. I think they move on their own to be next to their friends.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
