I made this as my first bed quilt. I tried to size it down and didn't realize how quickly it multiplies so it's an awkward size. LOL!!!

I have been on the road traveling since July 30th. No sewing but did pickup some great QOV fabric at a store in Ohio.  My roadtrip has been a blast, from SoCal to Michigan.  11 states enroute, but taking a straight route home.  

Wow I would have never thought of using the larger print!   

I just went to Bonnie Hunter’s Blog. Yes! Her instructions for the MM are so clear! Thank you I’m printing it out now. That would be a good scrappy pattern for our quilting group here where we live. Thank you Ami for the direction.

Just jumping in here.  Haven't been on the the forum on any kind of a regular basis for a few years.  Glad to see some familiar faces still hanging out.  I am currently working on 13 quilts for some co-workers.  Two started out as just because gifts for the ladies in the office, then it grew to two more for the retirees, then I said, oh what the heck, I'll just make everyone a quilt.  Couple of people later, I have settled on 13.  4 1/2 of which are done, four presented, one (the 1/2 of the 4 1/2) I decided to keep for myself and will have to remake for the original recipient.   The colors match my bedroom so I decided I am going to add some more borders to it  to make it fit my bed then keep it.  

This weekend, I finished up #6, started #7 and #8. Replacement fabric for number #7 (Pink Floyd) will be in this week and then it should go rather quickly.  I'm ready for the borders and some applique on #8 (Pokémon - yes its for an adult . . . it's what his dad gave me as an idea for him for so that's what he's getting . . .lol) then I can work on to the rest.  But anyway, not your traditional style of quilt but for a huge Grateful Dead fan so here is the one I just finished (this picture doesn't have the final black border around it) and as I make more progress on #7 & #8, I will post pictures of them too.  The rest of the quilts will follow a more traditional pieced style of quilting.  And I'm ready for a break from applique.

You are most welcome. Hopefully you enjoy making this pattern. I have made it 4 times and am already planning more.

Wow 13 quilts. Sounds like you have been making good progress. I bet the recipients are excited.

What fun!  That's a lot of miles to drive.  

safe travels to you

13 quilts?  That's ambitious.  You must have some really nice coworkers to make specialized quilts for them.
