I thought it was specified to cut our Cs the other way!

My back was in no shape for cutting fabric today, so I will just enjoy seeing your works in progress.

Default Inner Top Done!

Came home from running and got started on this. Just now finished the inner top. I donít knowÖmy dark and light might have been too stark in contrast to each other, but it was fun and very satisfying to get it put together so quickly!

I like it Quossum!! Very modern-esque with the dark and light when viewed in the thumbnail view. Get up close and the "I-spy" nature of the bigger blocks grabs your eye. Your quilt has multiple personalities! Great job!

Belfry -- your green/yellow contrast is eye-catching with the big bricks you chose. If you decide to go with the 3x3 pattern on their side, I can't wait to see how those turn out! Either way, lots of great quilting spaces in your quilt, too. I love your creative edge. Thank you for the inspiration!

Just finished my lap quilt borders and got it ironed. Itís raining here so I canít take a photo right now. Here is a partial quilt photo. I used a layer cake called buttercup and slate, then used purples in my stash for the dark, a different dark green with yellow border, light grayish lavender inner border, and a gray and white print for the lights. I like the end result, very satisfying to get it done in a day. Hugs all!!

Very very nice -- using a layer cake makes it more harmonious and less "busy". I'm finishing up the first of the two I'm making and will post later.

That was confusing to some. But you can easily adapt the pattern to run the other way. It takes a bit of mental maneuvering, but is not too hard to do. Hope your back gets better soon.
