The Future’s So Bright, aka Argyle

A while back I fell in love with this quilt from Crazy Mom Quilts, so I made my own version.  I think it’s turning out pretty well so far!   *edited to add – if you want to make this quilt,  here are the measurements.*

I studied Amanda’s quilt for a while.  Hers is not as controlled as mine, I think I’m more OCD.  I just HAD to align the blocks so the diamonds ran across the quilt in one direction.

This makes it look kind of argyle-y to me.  I really like it, and best of all, I didn’t purchase any new fabrics – these were all in my stash!  I used some pieces from the what-was-I-thinking-when-I-bought-this category.

This little booger kept jumping up in my shot.  I had to stop taking pictures and go kiss his face off and tickle him as a punishment for being ornery.
I love it! The colors are so fun. A little of this, a little of that ~ and a cute kid to boot!  I really like how you controlled the color with just enough white. It could have very easily gone over the edge. You’ve got such great color sense. ~ Cindi
