For those of you new to my blog, I am creating 200 quilts from my favorite quilt book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". There are 200 quilt blocks in this book and I want to show the designs they make when you put the blocks together. Many times there is more than one design you can make with each block.
I had wanted to do a scrap quilt, but this isn't a true scrap quilt because I used the same 10 fabrics throughout the quilt. This is though a great pattern for a scrap quilt. I had fun playing around with the pattern as well. I originally thought I was going to have the pattern design as follows:
But the more I played around with it, I came up with a design I liked better. Here it is:
There are over 500 pieces in this quilt, but it was well worth it. Here is my finished quilt:
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job three years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
