Way back in 2005 I started a quilt when I saw a BH&G American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine. It had a 10 inch block I'd never tried before and I had some fabric left from another project.
The project didn't look too hard, but I ran out of useable scraps and put the remaining fabric and blocks away inside the magazine.
The quilt at the right is the first quilt I did using these fabrics. I got very bored with it and hated the instructions and the BOM club fizzled out--long story short I had a smaller quilt and a lot of fabric in precut sizes.
I now have a new quilt--it fits nicely over the bed at night as an extra cover when it's cold. I did add an extra border to the pattern in the magazine and I wanted to add more, but didn't have enough fabric and didn't want to buy more of those colors. In the meantime, I had tried using up scraps and sent this quilt off to Mary to quilt.
I still have more strings to make into a quilt, and have one ready to put together. Soon all the fabrics I purchased through the years in these colors will be used up and I can do something totally different!
These colors though, are some of my husband's favorites. The quilt is complete and I'm taking care of DD who arrived with a bad cold and a terrible headache!
