Puzzle Completed

This took a lot of time, a lot more that I expected. Anyone who thinks the free piecing, modern, fit things in as you go is easy, IT'S NOT! But it is fun, challenging, and inspiring.


From purchasing this fabric to the piecing of this top, I always knew this was a quilt I was giving away. I'm confident this will brighten up someones room, keep them a little warmer this winter.

48 x 53 finished size. I used the Easy Angler ruler to cut the blocks, a great way to work with stripes. Now to get it quilted, bound and mailed to BASICS.

Your quilt reminds me of orange juice and pink lemonade. It does look like a puzzle. A wonderful use of striped fabric.

Oh, I love it! It looks like a happy fiesta! Someone will love this quilt. It's very generous of you to donate this. Good job, Sharon!

Yes, the making-it-up-as-you-go part is challenging, but also fun and very rewarding! It's hard to go back to doing someone else's patterns after you do this, isn't it?

Happy Halloween to you!
