    Navajo

    I just finished this quilt top. The pattern is Navajo from a book called Tradition with a Twist by Blance Young and Dalene Young Stone. The patter is in queen sized, but I made the pieces smaller so I could get a twin size quilt.

    I will make a second one of these and then put them on two twin beds in our guest room. I am really pleased with the way it turned out.

    I know you shouldn't admit your mistakes, but I sure made a big one on this quilt, my biggest quilting mistake in my 10 years of quilting. I was supposed to cut eighty-eight 3 1/4 wof strips, eleven for each of 8 different fabrics. After I sewed them into strip sets, I was supposed to cut those into 1 3/4 inch strips. I reversed those!!! So I had eighty-eight 1 3/4 inch strips instead of eighty-eight 3 1/4 strips!!! That will teach me to slow down a bit!!! I just got in a hurry. I will cut the strips for the second quilt correctly the first time this time. I intend to chant 3 1/4 over and over and over, 88 times, as I am cutting fabric.

    But first I will get this top quilted. I am a one-quilt-at-a-time girl. There aren't many of us. (I have no UFO's.)

    Thanks for looking.

    Dina

    Your quilt is beautiful. The blue fabric color is awesome.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Your quilt looks great, but I’m confused. The quilt isn’t purple 😀
