This is an Atkinson's Design Pattern from one of their latest pattern books, Happy Hour. The quilt is called Picture This and it was a fun one to make. It's very easy and goes together quickly (my favorite kind). The blocks turn out to be big 15" blocks, so you don't even have to make that many to get a decent sized lap quilt. I had something different in my head when I started it, and I'm not as thrilled with it as I thought I would be, but I do like it and my girls liked it when I finally got it done. I want to make this quilt in some other colors.
My next quilt is in the machine right now. It's my Not Ugly, Just Different 2 quilt. A little explanation......I made a quilt out of 4x4 squares that a friend had given me years ago. She had all the squares cut in a ziploc bag and the package was a garage sale item that didn't sell. The fabrics were pretty ugly, with the exception of a few. So, I sewed them together thinking that I could throw the thing outside in the grass and it wouldn't matter. Well, I got it together and really liked it.....it is very scrappy. I showed it to my friend and told her it was my Ugly quilt and she said, "it's not ugly, It's just different", and that stuck. Anyway, fast forward a few years and I found a ziploc of 4x4 squares at a thrift shop a few weeks ago, and I'm making another NUJD quilt. :) I'll be posting soon. It's raining today, and I have bible study this morning, but I plan to get some sewing done later. Yippee!! :) I hope your weather is to your liking where you live! :)
