    What I haven't mentioned is that there is virtually no waste with this pattern as the end cuts will be made into a piano key border.

    FANtastic use of that fabric. Makes me feel like someone is using fans for a fan dance. AND yes, I have quite a few of those "to die" for fabrics on my shelf. The most I ever paid was $20 for a yard. Yes I eventually used it in a wall piece for my DD.

    Good idea. Yes, I have bought fabric just 'cause I liked it. I have used some of it, but some of it I still have.

    Thanks for the pattern. I too buy fabric at times with no idea what to use it in, but just had to have it. That's part of my fabric addiction. ;O)

    Here is the top finished

    It is such a quick and easy pattern that I finished if over the weekend and then did the Till roll border, it is the most economical of patterns that I ever used. I have posted a pic of the scraps that I have left, most of which will go into a scrappy Till roll border for another quilt.

    I must admit to loving the finished top, and some of my Patchwork group are doing a version of it as well, will post pics of theirs when they have done more.

    It measures 4' 4" x 5' 4" a great result from a yard of fabric, about 1/2 yard of the Orange fabric and a few bits n pieces from my stash IMO

    Thanks Piney, Muffin would not listen to a word I say to do with quilts she just in love with all of them. I will be making some more of this pattern as they are so economical and fun to make, perfect for my Project Linus quilts!

    I just saw that quilt today on another thread. It was called Take Two. And the other picture on p. 3 is a Disappearing 9 Patch. It's so cute, how putting different fabrics in the same pattern results in such a different look. These two quilts are very beautiful.

    I have been having a bit of an "off" time lately but I got a new cleaner on Saturday and seeing my home was tidier I finished the binding of, what is at present, one of my favourite quilts. It is on display in the hall on a Victorian style towel/quilt rail along with a Friendship quilt made for me by my Forum members, doesn't it look stunning? IMO it does and I am so chuffed as to how it turned out, it'a bit of a shame it being on the display as it has the most beautiful flannel backing but I know as the Winter gets colder Muffin will insist that I put it on the bed for us to cuddle under

    I will and am using this pattern a lot as it is a lovely pattern to "showcase" a special fabric besides being such an econimocal and really quick way to make a quilt, I made one in under a week for Llinos, my warden's sister who has Downs syndrome, must get a pic of it, duh forgot

    Beautiful Fabric - Beautiful quilt

    Love your fabric, Love your quilt! I have used this pattern for scrappy quilts! My three grand-daughters each made a quilt from this pattern last summer. It was a great beginner project! We have heard it called "Fractions"
