    I finished this quilt top today. It was an interesting pattern. I had to use the seam ripper many times. (I feel the pain of those that have posted about how they were "friends/enemies" with the seam ripper)

    I will say some of the times I had to use the seam ripper, I feel the pattern didn't give enough information on how the blocks went together.

    Quilt was designed by Sandie McCann.

    Thanks for looking
    Carol

    Excellent! Bold and interesting while still serene and soothing. Can't wait to see it quilted.

    yes, sometimes you have to read and then look at the photo of the quilt and then read again. I love patterns that as they go along they give each measurement as they are sewn. that helps a lot to know what each segment is supposed to measure.
    great quilt!!

    I really love it & would love to make one for myself if you wouldn't mind sharing the name of the pattern. I have lots of wonderful butterfly fabric that I think would look really good in the pattern that you followed.

    I added a link below my picture of the pattern. I hope that is ok.

    If you have questions about the pattern I will try to help you.

    It is interesting in that it doesn't use 12" blocks or other set size blocks.
