make

This sweet little scrappy pattern is from a free McCall's e-book. I only printed the instruction page, but the name was something about Baubles and Beads :) I think.  I made one little block each day from my stash last summer.  The gray polka dot strips link them all together in vertical rows.  I wish it was a shade darker.  I handquilted it- meant to look like a cable-knit sweater. 
    Here's a peek at the back...
and just hanging out on the porch.

Oh this quilt is ADORABLE! Your quilting is genius - it adds so much to the quilt (which is beautiful on its own I must add!). I love it on your porch bench!

I love the bright colors. You did such a great job of picking color palette and the quilting. One of my all times favorites from your sewing room.

The quilting is wonderful. Using a curved design really makes it pop. I like the way you used the extra blocks on the back.
