Lover's Links

My favorite kind of quilt to make is improvisational,
Scrappy and UN-planned.
THIS is NOT that quilt.
LOL!

Every once in a while I step out of my comfort zone
and follow a pattern.
This time...
my points didn't get TOO lost
and the seams cooperated with me!

I had some binding suggestions last week
from quilting friends....
and ended up with YELLOW!!

Not what I THOUGHT I was going to use...
but that's what POPPED out 
when I was digging around here for something.
;)
And I think it makes this quilt a little BRIGHTER and happier!

I'm very happy with my quilt!

I used reproduction fabrics PLUS other things I thought fit in.
My method is.....
USE what YOU have!

Pattern from an old McCalls magazine (august 2000).
Google lover's links images
and you'll find a host of others.
