    I walked into my LQS on Friday and saw a beautiful BQ Quilt hanging from the ceiling. It was made up in Paula Nadelstern Fabrics. Some of the fabrics were out of stock, due to sample. But they did have a nice blue and purple subtitute, which happens to be my favorite colors.

    So, I spent some time this weekend cutting and presewing for a quilt retreat in three weeks. I like to cut my projects before retreat. There are less mistakes and I don't run out of fabric.

    Fabric w/selvedge is last border

    Just ordered the Nuance fabric this last week. I love it! Never thought of using it in a BQ Quilt.... GOOD IDEA! It will be wonderful!

    Look at the top right-hand corner of the first picture. The pattern is called BQ by Maple Island Quilts.

    Check out this one by Charisma, its wonderful.

    Your block is going to be beautiful.
    I love that medallion fabric. I have some of it in the orange and the blue. I used the orange for the quilt in my avatar.

    Thanks for getting me inspired. I love this pattern. Made one from batiks and working on a small block version with Xmas fabrics.

    I am using 12 blocks, 3 across and 4 down, with a 2", 1" & 7" border. It should be around 68" x 84", which is twin bed size. (My 7" border was determined by the Paula Nadelstern fabric, also.)
    The pattern shows sizes from baby (4 blocks) and up.
