I'm calling this one Diagonal Squares, yeah I know great name, but it beat Red JoAnn's quilt which is what I've called it up until now. Sharla bought me two kits of the fabric for Christmas in 2008, but I didn't put it together until last year. I didn't like the patter with the kit, so I just cut it into strips, and did the method for a Trip Around the World quilt but placed the squares in rows instead of in a circle.
I really like the backing fabric, the reds don't match exactly, but close enough for horseshoes. I did the all over meander again, and I really am getting the hang of it. I still have a few bumps but overall I'm very happy with how this one turned out. And I think someone else likes it a lot too.
This was before I put the binding on it. I had it in the living room for Sharla to help me decide what to use for the binding and someone found it and made himself at home. He is blind, but he can snoop out a quilt anywhere in the house. This was even better because my foot was under it and he loves laying on my foot.
I'm still working on the test quilt and hope to have the top pieced by the end of this weekend. I've also gotten 4 rows of the Trails End quilt sewn together. My hope is to have both tops completed by Monday. My next one to quilt is a t-shirt quilt Sharla made in 2008. It isn't very big, so hopefully I will finish it all on Monday/Tuesday.
