|Fabulously Fast Quilts by Amy Smart|
So the first thing I want to tell you, I love the look of each of the quilt projects, and can see myself making more of the quilts, maybe all of them, at some point. The title is so accurate too, this quilt is coming together amazingly fast, but you could easily change the title to Fast and Fabulous and it would be spot on as well!!!
Just a thought, I think Square Deal (the quilt patterns name) would make a great sewing retreat or weekend project!
Second, I made some rookie mistakes, I don't know what it is with me and Log Cabin type blocks, but I seem to mess them up every time! So after I ripped one full row off of 3 blocks (3 out of 4 blocks would be an epic fail if this were a test, lol), and put the strips on the correct sides, because it makes a difference, I finished the remaining blocks without anymore problems!! (lol, probably because I was so afraid of making another mistake, I checked and triple checked every strip!!)
Third, a refresher for anyone new.... I used Jinny Beyer Batiks, and Cotton Supreme Solids from RJR Fabrics to put this quilt top together, and here is the center of the quilt complete!! All that's left are the 2 borders and the top will be finished...... and doesn't it look great next to the pool!!
