I found this pattern on the internet at a site called Cross Me Not. To make this in fabric I just need to substitute a piece of fabric for each square on the patten. Let's GO!
I printed some pages and then designed a quilty background.
I'm auditioning the fabrics here to see if they play nicely together.
I lay the 1" squares of fabric on my gridded mat to make the pattern.
The TAN mat is FULL so I must use another mat (BLUE) to continue the pattern.
This shows all the squares of the top half sewn together and half the bottom.
Now I need to sew ALL the horizontal seams.
The state flower of MD where I live is the Black Eyed Susan.
These yellow flowers with monkey face centers are "Silly Susans" because I like to add whimsey to my quilts. I also added my signature square that has my name on it. :)
See the tiny dachshund?
The quilt top is ready for quilting.
I ALWAYS add some purple to my quilts.
This quilt has a purple dragonfly.
"Misty" is 23" x 21".
Thanks, Linda, for letting me love your temperamental machine and give it a new home.
She has her own table and looks out over the golf course.
