    I finished this one today. I have to order some matching backing fabrics. This is a very easy pattern that I got for free from www.MaryQuilts.com I used a jelly roll of Aster Manor Moda Fabric. The top measures 48" x 60". I don't plan on putting a border on it. I think a binding made from the backing fabric I choose will be fine. It was my first time using a jelly roll and there was no waste of fabric, using this pattern. So, that was great. I'd recommend it for beginners as it was quick and easy. I think it came out nice. Thanks for looking:>

    That's great! I bought some yardage of several of the prints a few months ago and haven't decided what to do with it yet. Maybe I'll try this pattern. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a stunning quilt and the colors are so sweet.

    I agree, a border is certainly not needed. You did a great job with color placements.

    Enjoy.

    This is so weird but I took a pic of a chair at a restaurant that had that pattern. I liked it so much I thought that would make a beautiful quilt and I was right. You did a great job. I'm glad I got to see it. Thanks for posting.

    Well done. Very classy looking. This sure is a popular block. And you are right. It is so easy. I am in the process of making a second one.

    Thanks all. I'm contemplating how I will quilt it. I may break out my new Aurifil 28 wt. thread and do some quilting embroidery. I got some wonderful rose colored and light pink variegated thread in the mail today that matches perfectly.
