I'm so excited about the release of Elizabeth's (Don't Call Me Betsy) new (and first!) pattern! It makes a really fun quilt. If you've participated in Elizabeth's quilt-alongs, then you know the level of detail and clarity you can expect in a pattern from her.
Elizabeth used the glorious Free Spirit solids in her version. I opted to go stash shopping to make mine. I used mostly prints for the colored squares, with a few solids thrown in the mix. (I'm a little concerned that I found all of these fabrics in my stash. Remind me why I keep buying more...)
Luke has made me promise that we will keep this quilt for ourselves. See, the maze-like pattern makes the perfect road for his cars, the perfect town for his action figures, etc. (Note to self--finish this one fast!) I think it would make a great bed quilt. Luke thinks we should get rid of our living room rug and keep this on the floor instead.
(Blerg--just now noticing that I sewed those orange squares together incorrectly.)
Cutting up all of the squares takes some time, but I made quick work of it with this tool. I love the simple and striking design!
Now, head to Elizabeth's blog and show her some love! I'll be back soon with my Bloggers' Quilt Festival entry.
