2 for 1 Special this month

So I started out strong, even though orange is not one of my favorite colors. I plugged along. Then came vacation, plans didn’t work out so I ended up being around home for a week and a day. And boy did I get stuff done!!!

I found this pattern on pinterest and ordered it but I was never sure what fabrics I was going to use. Well, I do now.MagicStars Usually this type of pattern would drive me crazy and I was really worried about that when I started putting the blocks together. But once it was all together, the offsetting/misalignment really works…for some dumb reason.

So, I actually finished this one on Sunday. Then I had all these pieces left over and lots of time on my hands, so on Tuesday, I started putting a braid together. I have always wanted to do a braid. It’s not perfect, it’s a weird size/shape, but I really love how it turned out. But, the brown I used in this one, I was going to use to bind 2 other quilts and I had just enough, to the point that I had to piece a couple of smaller pieces onto the bottom boarder piece. Whew, it worked with a 3 inch piece left over.

BraidsI think this is the perfect size for 2 people to use when laying/sitting on a love seat when you don’t want all the bulk that comes with a traditional sized quilt. The braid points are off but I think that goes along great with the scrappy theme. The braid instructions I was following you were supposed to cut it into squares, but I just loved how they went together so I kept them that way.

On to find inspiration for November – Yellow!

UPDATE (11/28/2015): So, I was so unsatisfied with the second quilt top this month, I redid it. I would spend nights thinking about that thing, so I had some extra time on Black Friday when I wasn’t out shopping and “FIXED” it!
