    Quilt for Emily

    Just finished quilt for my college niece Emily. Didn't want anything traditional so I stayed clear of those patterns :-)
    Will be seeing her soon and hope she likes her new quilt. I used black flannel for the backing for extra warmth.
    This pattern was from a class taken at Quilt Guild last year.
    Thanks for looking!

    thank you so much for your kind words.

    If a name was given to the pattern I don't have it since it was from last year. It is really simple. Black/White charm packs and 2 1/2" strips of assorted colors (this was the challenge in finding all the different colors that worked well with each other). Take four 5" squares and sew into a 4 patch. Slash and add a 2 1/2" strips of color in two spaces after sewing in place turn it sideways and add two more slashes and add two strips of color. Sew the strips at an angle to create a tapered end. Trim square to the size block that works well with all your slash and sew blocks. I trimmed mine to 10 1/2". I remembered seeing a quilt with the appliqued tips on some of the strips and added them sporatically. A very easy pattern to do. I hope I didn't muddle up the directions too much


    I made extra blocks and made a wheel chair donation quilt and looks like I have enough blocks to make another donation wheel chair quilt. Of course I made them a little different than the one for my niece

    It looks great.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I just looked through the books I have. One of them "Accent on Angles" has a pattern called "Dragon Bones" in it. Dragon Bones looks similar to this quilt.

    HTH someone!

    Really cute pattern, I am using the same black and white wavy fabric on a 'modern' quilt I have on my machine now.
