make

  There's not much of a story about this little quilt except
 I used my latest favorite block
and four of my favorite colors.
Here it is relaxing in my gravel bed. 
After watching Jinny Beyer's free Quilt Legend video on The Quilt Show, with her amazing lesson on choosing colors, I tried to arrange each block going around light to dark.  The scrappy border was fun to make, too- just made strips, then cut them across.  There are hand-quilted squares going round and round. 
 
Here's another picture- the quilt hard at work on the front porch.
Thanks for visiting!
