For many years I would see this quilt pattern at quilt shows. I was amazed at how beautiful these quilts turned out no matter what fabric used. I had been collecting this Kaffe Fasset fabric for years and decided to put some of these in the quilt.
I also used the pattern as the basis for a mystery quilt for the Threadheads (group of quilting friends). All quilts came out wonderful! It is a fun project to do with friends.
Ruthmary decided to quilt circle “doodles” in the squares throughout the quilt. I wish I could remember what batting I used. Usually I buy Warm and Natural but this time I tried something on close-out. After washing, the quilt had and old fashioned look.
My daughter liked the quilt so much that she asked to take it with her to college!
