    Carolina Chain

    This is a Bonnie Hunter block, but instead of 2" squares, I used 3 1/2." I think next time, I'll use a lighter light for the chain. I enjoyed the pattern; it goes together easily and quickly.

    What did your finished quilt measure compared to Bonnie's measurement using 2" squares? I have considered doing one of her quilts using 2 1/2 as opposed to 2" as I have plenty of 2 1/2" sq. already cut out. Thanks.

    A great stash buster, way to go. Don't you love it when you are inspired to tweak a pattern your way?

    Love the colors you used. Bright and cheerful. Hope it made a tiny dent in your stash.

    That looks great! You did a good job....and I always like scrapes, unless they are the ones I make. Those just don't turn my head like this one does.

    Pretty! Did you do it with leaders and enders like she does, or just with cut-out squares? My leaders always get bird's nests on them so I don't think that way would work for me.

    I didn't do leaders and enders, just made the blocks.
    Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

    I see what you mean by a lighter, light. I had to go back ad look at the quilt again. It does work though, like a hidden pattern. I like it very much.
