    It turned out better than I thought. I was using up just absolute dregs-bottom of the barrel scraps of blue, aqua, grey, cream and white. I was just goofing around trying to see if I could even do that pattern and paper piece.

    Getting rid of the paper was kind of a drag but it was worth it to get matching points. I had a little mountain of paper shreds by the recliner that I drug all over the house.😄

    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Will be interested in how you are going to quilt it. Please post a photo when you finished quilting this top.

    I started quilting it a couple of weeks ago but took a break to make some little stuff so I don't get burned out. I'm just learning FMQ right now and I'm not a natural for it so I have to make myself do it.

    Right now I'm just following my gut and going by the piece. On some prints I go around the print pattern on light pieces I'm doing kind of a pebbly texture on pieces I dont know what to do with I just wander around or make little loops.

    I've only got four blocks quilted. I have two Christmas table runners to bind then I'll start up on it again. So far it's okay as long as I don't try straight lines. When I first started, I thought straight lines by the piece would be easy. I did two blocks and ripped out the stitching. It looked awful!. I never dreamed a simple straight line would be so hard when FMQ.

    Hi, I am french living in Paris, and loving your quilt. Would you tell me where to find the pattern. It is a bit different from the one I recently did, and I would love to change the pattern. Thanks. Catherine

    I found it on Quilter's Cache. There are truckloads of free patterns on that site. Here is a link.
