    Grandson's quilt

    Finished this today in record time! I was under the gun to have it completed in time for his party today. So I made it! This quilt is totally out of my element. I am not a very good machine piecer or quilter. But I put my new Viking 870 to the test! The pattern is my creation because I totally messed up the pattern I was trying to follow. So this is the result of a lot of rearranging and math!

    I sure don't see any mess up. That is really cool. Hope you don't mind if I copy this pattern. What a rainbow of colors! BrendaK

    I love the bright colors! I don't see any "mess up" at all. Remember, there are never any mistakes in quilting...only creative adjustments!
