Ok, so here is why this scrappy quilt pattern was so perfect for this friendly neighborblogland Hillbilly...all I had to do was add a little here, add a little there, cut some off here and then there, nothing was supposed to be even, the rows--are you ready for this-were NOT supposed to line up..catch my drift? Oh, ya, perfect for me!
I followed Marcia's original design of sticking to one color for this quilt. (with the exception of some blue charm squares that I whacked up for the centers).
I think this quilt should be called "Momma, load up the bottles we are going on a Sunny Sunday afternoon car ride". (or something similar that is not near as lengthy.).
I still have to add borders, but I needed to get this linked up and it is now 1 a.m. Borders aren't going to happen tonight. (Hey, I wonder if there are any border fairy's out there kind of like the shoe dwarfs in that one children's fairy tale?) Here is the fabric I am going to use.
It will have 1" blue and 3" (or so) yellow border:
Marcia is offering free quilting to one winner in the challenge. If I should win in that draw, then I will have Marcia quilt it and send it to Belinda for her Neonatal Intensive Care Unit quilts.
If I don't win, then I'll send it to Marilyn who will quilt it up for her Binky Patrol quilts.
Why not just quilt it myself?
I have 8 pillow cushion covers and 2 dresden plate quilts that have to get done ASAP. The 2 quilts have been in the works for over a year but the recipient is wanting them. (I really can't blame her.)
This is also why I am kind of quiet right now. I'll breathe easier when those two quilts are on their way to Marcia's and it will be her job to worry about the quilting!
