This is my finished top from Lori's latest quiltalong, Quilters Madder. It's a reproduction of a small antique quilt that Lori saw at quilt show, and we were supposed to use madders for the fabric. I don't know how in the heck to identify a madder, so I picked out a collection of Jo Morton fabrics I had in the cabinet and used those.
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.
