    These are from a class at LQS. You make one block, cut it diagonal, and have 2 pieces to make quilts with. The fabric I got at yard sale for 50 cents a yard. The backing was some whole cloth at the same sale. They're going to 2 soldiers in our church when they return.

    Super quilts, I love them.
    You are lucky your LQS lets you bring in fabric from a different source then their store.

    Looks Great!! I just picked up this pattern at a shop in Nevada last week. I had seen a couple quilts done in Oriental Fabrics that were in this pattern and were gorgeous. I will have to try it soon. It looks really easy!

    You know the hardest part? Not putting the same fabric next to each other. It was a really easy quilt to sew.
