Design Wall Monday, January 30, 2012

Where did January go?  I put this top together using some FQ's that I purchased on Quilter's Flea Market and some stripes and pieces I had on hand.  One of my quilting friends was working on a similar quilt block at our last retreat.  She found the idea on a Missouri Star tutorial of a technique developed right here in Phoenix at the 3 Dudes Quilt Shop.  Here is the tutorial site.

I am going to add several borders to enlarge this top.  It is for a tween who loves purple.

I just put the blocks together in the same orientation.  Two of my friends who used this technique put the blocks together in a different manner.  I will try to get photos of all three to show you.
