    New class sample

    Playswithcolor, mentioned warm wishes pattern lay out for my class. I stitched up another sample for class. They both preferred this one best. Thank you so much for the suggestion. Here is a photo of my new sample. Thanks for taking a look.

    That is very inspiring, especially for a new quilter like myself. It looks like something I would not be afraid to attempt, and yet at the same time is is very pretty. Thanks for this!

    Hopflower, I had two coworkers at my house tonight to do this quilt, we only worked for two hours, and that included getting familiar with two new machines. Both have all pieces cut out and have one row together. You could do this. It was great fun and we will get together next week. I am thinking we will be ready to put the boarders on next week.

    I agree with this.

    This looks great. What size are the blocks?
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I'm going to bookmark this because there's a great secondary pattern that shows up and depending on fabric placement you could make it recede or stand out. Thanks so much for posting this photo.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    that is one of my favorite patterns, it goes together so easy. What I like best is you can vary the sizes to suit your focal print then adapt your strips to suit it. I have done it with 3 and 4 strips, it is so much fun just to play with it.

    I have Sesame Street fabric and 3 bright primary colors that go with the Sesame Street fabric; yellow, red, and blue. Do you think that the bright colors would overpower the main fabric?

    grammy of 6 I think the bright fabrics would frame your focus fabric nicely. Would love to see yours.

    This pattern is called Warm Wishes. Goes together really quickly.
