    This is from Pam's "Big Book of Quick Rotary Cut Quilts". I love this pattern!!! It has over 2000 pieces and the smallest is 1x1 that results in a 1/2x1/2 square.
    The Amish were selling it for about $850.
    http://www.amishcountrylanes.com/Pages/hs2517.shtml
    It has been discontinued, I can understand why :lol: , there is no way I would make this quilt for that price!!!!
    While it is really an relatively easy pattern, it is one that I have pressed a lot AND used a lot of starch. It is labor and thread intensive!!!!
    I am half way thru, whew!!! I am a hand quilter and with all of these seams there is no way in the world I would hand quilt this!!!
    I also think this may turn out to be a heavier quilt with all of the seams.
    The next one will be red, black, and white. IMO, Pam Bono is extremely talented!

    I really like Pam Bono patterns but you have to REALLY pay attention. The results are so worth it.

    One thing, and I am hesitant to mention but in your picture on the right hand side 2nd block from the bottom, is it supposed to be that way? Looks like a grouping got accidently turned 1/4 turn counterclockwise. I am not being the quilt police! Honest. I know I have made mistakes like that and never even noticed until I got the darn thing all the way put together.

    BTW this is turning out great. it will be a beautiful quilt when completed

    I'm not the quilt police either, but I see the block that got turned a quarter turn. It's on the outside edge, so it will be easy to fix.

    I absolutely love Pam Bono's designs - she has the coolest stuff! I'm pretty sure I have that particular book also. Is it the one with black and white cats on the front?

    Beautiful! What is the name of this quilt pattern? I have a book by Pam Bono and I think it might be in that one too. I noticed when I selected the "Look inside this book" feature at Amaazon.com that several of the quilts pictured are in the book I have. Maybe this one is too?
