I had all of the blocks put together at retreat but wanted to lay them out on the design wall before I sewed them together. Huh, after I laid it out, I wound up ripping apart 7 of the 8 Old Maid's puzzle blocks so I could turn those little bowtie units to match the antique. I liked that effect better. I couldn't discern the pattern for setting the blocks together from either Lori's quilt or the antique quilt, so I set them the way I wanted.
Haven't got this quilted yet, hopefully in the next week or so. Thanks, Lori, for a fun quiltalong! You can see other Quilters Madder quilts here.
quiltalong on Lori's blog, humblequilts.blogspot.com; and Charity Baby #5, "Jumping for Joy" from the latest issue of Quiltmaker magazine. The quilt in the magazine was quite a bit larger, but mine is only 36" square, which is the size our quilt group has been making this year and last. I'll bind it in the blue.
Baby Girl is 4 months old now and a very happy little baby.
