The original pattern was intended for a pillow but I made it a quilt. I used a charm pack to make the patchwork border. I cut the charm squares into 2 1/2" squares. It finished 28" x 28". I cut the center square 20 1/2" square (to finish at 20" square). However you can make it any size you want and still add the patchwork border by making the center piece divisible by 2 and adding 1/2" for seam allowance to that.
I thought I would share the color combinations from the students in my classes.
And this is Pam's (of course if you know Pam, you know it will be red and black. She's as predictable with red/black as I am with red/white/blue.)
They all used red, white, and black but changed fabrics and background colors and it's looks completely different.
We all had a lot of fun and visited way too much. I hope they learned something besides gossip! What, wait, there's no gossip going around in class! Just the facts ma'am! And if you're interested, I'm going to teach this same class again in Nevada, MO on Monday, March 17 at the Nine Patch Quilt Shop.
I hope you been hopping along on the Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop going on now. You can see the complete schedule here.
