    a quilt I finished

    Pattern is called Thorny Crown. From J Martins book Scraps Blocks & Quilts. In my mind I think I did this quilt top before. I ran out of a couple fabric. The fabrics in the quilt I made a couple blocks different. My 2nd picture you will see a example of what I did.Name:  IMG_0020.JPG

    That is a beautiful quilt. It looks very complicated from a distance, but when I see it up close, the pattern becomes very clear. You did a great job. I have that book. I need to go find it.

    as in every quilt you make, they are more amazing than the one before. wonderful work!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That's another beauty, Don. Loads of pieces and parts... I love your choice of fabrics, too. Those look awesome together.

    You're going to make me buy another Judy Martin book, aren't you?

    Lovely quilt. Look at 3rd and 4th blocks on second row. I think these have a couple of units incorrectly placed. Perhaps you might want to change before quilting

    Hey Don,

    Great to see you have posted another quilt. Took me while to find the blocks that were “different”. The quilt blocks look ok and blend in well.

    I had the same thing happen to me a couple days ago. Not enough fabric in a kit I had purchased about 10 years ago. (This is why we/I should not wait 10 years, but check out the pattern/fabric amounts right away). :-). Anyway, I was very discouraged and set it aside. The next day I looked through my stash and found a perfect fabric to use——and had enough of it. :-). It blended right into my blocks. Yesterday I dove back into it and am almost finished making the required blocks —-(with the additional fabric)—- :-)
