PATCHWORK PUTTERING - PART 2

Admittedly, I'm not much of a piecer......I was in the past, but not so much now.  Therefore, big blocks that deliver big impact are my choice for patchwork.  Click here to see part 1 of the making of this quilt.
 Also, being an "A" type, very organized personality....I'm not comfortable sitting and stitching block after block without assigning them their 'place'.  I decided to make only a few blocks at a time....positioning as I went along.  Of course that's not the most efficient way to sew but it works for me.
And in no time....the lap quilt blocks were made.  Yes, I did rearrange some!
Straight line horizontal quilting on my home machine completes this commission piece.  Okay, I'll admit....I had fun....

Thank you Sheila....your research helps us to remember....really...new 'trends' are most often based on old themes!
