Anyhow, the same night I started cutting it out and making up sample blocks. They are really cute little blocks!
Well, last week I'd finished a different quilt and didn't want to start something new so I pulled out my bin of blocks and started throwing them up on the design wall. One thing led to another and before I knew it I had the entire thing laid out.
Of the 3 versions shown in the magazine, I picked designer Lissa Alexander's (Modalissa.blogspot.com) version. She called hers "Rainbow Rows".
I absolutely love how it turned out. I used ONLY fabric from my stash but have had to order some backing fabric for it. I can't wait till that arrives so I can ship it off to my favorite quilter and see what magic she will do to it!
Finished size is 80 x 80!
Now....it's time to move onto the 2014 Quilt Along which is called "Tone It Down".
