A friend and I have been working on this unique quilt for a few months. She saw it made up in a quilt store in Utah and just had to have it. She called me and asked me to make one with her, so of course I did:). I love quilting along with friends. I guess that is why I like Internet quilt alongs so well, but a real life QAL is the BEST!
We have pieced all of the fun center strip sections, I would like to say that the instructions were clear and easy, but quite a few of the blocks were incorrect, and many were difficult to understand. Luckily, I am not a beginning quilter so I just used the piecing technique that I like best and went on ahead. It is frustrating though when the pattern is confusing.
I am really enjoying adding the strips and watching these blocks grow bigger, but bummer, I don’t have enough fabric! It’s my own fault though. I decided that making two of each block was easier to do now instead of later when I might want it bigger. (Ugh, I do that quite often with quilts I like). I added extra fabric from my stash, but now that I am at the end, I realize I need more. So this quilt will have to wait until my order of new fabric comes in. Lol!
Oh well. Life is SWEET and I will finish this quilt when the fabric comes in next week:)
