Which one of these checker board type configurations would I rather be playing with right now? Hmmm.
Queso, Kim came over and we made another snap bag (get your own pattern here) and almost finished binding a wee tiny turtle quilt and then I got the above checkerboard quilt arranged. It will have navy blue sashing 3/4 inch finished and a piano key border. The pattern is from Fons n Porter October '07 issue, it's called "Checkers."
I made enough blocks for two quilts but then I realized that each quilt would be too small (48 x 60) so I am going to make one big quilt. It is a wedding present for the second cutest couple I know. They like simple clean lines and bold but dark colors so I think its perfect.
Alas it is a keyboard I must attend to now. . . I will work on the quilt more this week while my guy is out of town. Sigh.
