One Down....Five to Go!


Tonight, I put the binding on one placemat. It needs to be washed and squared.....and just five more to go!

I decided at the last minute to participate in Crazy Mom's Quilt Along. She is doing her quilt in pinks and parchment. I, of course, had to be different! I am using my favorite color - green! and white for the background...... (and no comments on the unmatched points! I'm doing this for fun!!!!! ughhhh....I've only been quilting for 100 years or so, why can't I get them perfect??? Oh well!!!)


Now, I am a scrap lover and while I love Crazy Mom's blocks, I thought I'd dig through my strips, as well as fat quarters, and use as many greens as I can. The first block called for two fabrics, so I used three! Gotta love rebels!

Happy Quilting!!!

I like your green and white blocks. If I was making her quilt I'd be doing it the same way you are - my own way.

Great job on the placemat.

Sometimes you just have to enjoy the process and not worry about the little details of the points not turning out perfectly. I love scrappy quilts - the more fabrics the better as far as I am concerned!

The extra fabric choices will give your finished quilt a lot more personality . . . viva the rebels *s*

It's your quilt. You can use as many fabrics as you want. I think two greens look great and your piecing is beautiful.

I don't think there's anything wrong with your star points! And using more fabrics just makes it more interesting.

Love what you did with the center here, too!

Your points look pretty darn near perfect to me ... and I'm also "breakin' the rules" by using different colors in the center. Great minds think alike! Can't wait to see your progress.
