See that block in the lower left hand corner, I'm so happy it is finished.
That block took me an hour and half to complete, the block is called Guerrillas, the name is correct, it was a guerrilla to make.
I must admit it is a terrific looking block, and exactly 6.5 ", paper piece is always so accurate.
I decided to only work out of the CW Love Letter book.
15 blocks finished and several more drafted and ready to go. I'm wishing now I would have done them all in the red white and blue. Oh well no turning back now.
I have been working on this quilt , for Mary at "All About Quilts". It is to be a quilt shop sample. We select the fabric together it is always so much fun picking out the fabric for a new project, especially when price is no object. We try to make selections that resemble the pattern as much as possible. We did a pretty god job of that, but
I am not happy with the outcome, to me it looks like a little quilt with a bunch of borders sewed on.
I took the top to the shop yesterday and Mary just loves it. She likes it so well she is going to send this one out to be quilted. Maybe when it comes back I'll like it better. I'm sure the scalloped border will help.
Kathie over at Inspired by Antique Quilts has suggested making this quilt for March madness, hey you go girl, I have already did that march.
I made this quilt top about 8 years ago as a group mystery quilt. I just recently came across it when I cleaned my sewing room, now it has been added to my ufo list of things to finish this year.
