Pat's USMC quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I finally finished it! I broke my finger after I had it pieced, and it took a long time to get back to it to finish it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Play around with the design a little bit to find a combination of squares that you like. I use graph paper and colored pencils to get a good idea. You can even take pictures of the bandanas and print them out (very small) to play with the design.

What you will need

  • Bandanas were used for the center and corner blocks. The pieced blocks were made with standard quilter's solids. It is machine pieced and machine quilted.
