    Patrice this is absolutely gorgeous!! did you use a particular fabric collection or just pull from the stash? I can imagine that this pix does not do justice to the actual beauty of this quilt. I love 2 color quilts! Your input would be greatly appreciated.

    TIA Vicky

    thanks for the compliments.

    i was lucky with this one. i got everything i needed from my stash.
    i'm not a skilled quilter at all, so i just did stitch-at-the-ditch for the whole thing.

    the plaits block drove me a bit batty.
    the piecing is easy. i tend to get mixed up, though, and put colors in the wrong places.
    lots of reverse stitching until it's all where it's supposed to be. LOL
    that isn't the block. it's me. happens a lot, no matter what i'm making. LOL

    the plaits block makes a great alternating block.
    it works with lots of different primary blocks - especially stars.
    you will usually end up with several different "patterns" depending on where you focus in the layout.
    it's like making three or four quilts at once.

    both blocks are in the public domain, so i don't claim any copyrights.
    if you think you'd like to try one, i've attached a blank worksheet.
    grab some colored pencils and plan yours.
    i'd love to see photos if anybody does one.

    What a great pattern... first I see stars, then interlocking rings. It's beautiful.

    It is hard to see your picture of your quilt. It's like it has a red screen over it. Can you repost? Thank you.

    thanks for all the kind words.

    they are 12" blocks.

    that was the best photo i could get at the time. my camera leaves a lot to be desired. i can't try again because it's already been gifted to some friends who live out of town.

    Beautiful quilt. Love the colors of your fabric and love the pattern. Are you machine quilting, sending to a LA quilter or hand quilting it? Any way-it will be beautiful.

    I totally love this top! Your color/fabric choices are great. I have not seen this wonderful pattern before. Congrats on having the quilt of the week. I look forward to seeing it quilted.

    What made you decide to put those two blocks together? It was a spectacular choice. And, BTW, before you buy a camera, note that all the new phones come with great cameras that take better pictures than my hubbies professional Nikon F Series.
