SewTrini asked:
This is very eye catching. Presently I am working on a quilt with similar idea of uisng some of my machine stitches in the blocks.

Love to see what you are making!
zigo188846 asked:
Very nice - A unique variation on the class. How big is it??
Carol Ann Waugh answered:
Good question! I didn't measure it but I would guess the blocks are 10" and the sashing around 4" so that would make it about 46" square.
Sherry Whitford asked:
What fun, Carol Ann! Even though I've not yet finished my stitch bible, I already find myself referring to it and have used it in combination with variations from your four-fabric class. They'll eventually become Alzheimer's Priority Quilts to help raise money for Alzheimer's research through Ami Simms' Alzheimer's Art Qult Initiative.
Carol Ann Waugh answered:
Wonderful. Ami has done so much to raise money for this important cause.
