I love this pattern so much... it looks really beautiful. Washing quilts really does improve their look. The crinkly-ness and softness take them to a whole new level--you'll love it even more!

GORGEOUS!  I did the Red Square one, inspired by a lady named Chaelaanne, who designed the basic pattern.  I think she hangs around here... I hope she sees your work!  How cool to have inspired someone ELSE with a quilt of mine.  Smiley

I am in awe of this.  I would really like to attempt to make one myself but I am at a total loss on how.  Any chance of a tutorial or some instructions?   Grin

Not sure how to do a tutorial for something as involved as a quilt! I did page through a few books at the bookstore to get a sense of how to attach the top to the back and to do the machine quilting. For figuring out the top, nothing beats some graph paper. Just figure out some kind of scale (for me, it was every square = 3") and draw out what you'd like to make. It's basically a pixelated pattern!

You just answered my question!!!  Thank you annam42!  They are small squares attached together to make the larger block just like a normal quilt... duh!  Blond moment, I apologize!  This make so much more since to me, and am such a basic quilter that I thought that the squares were full pieces of fabric appliqud on.  Thank you for clearing this up for me!

It's really pretty.  I could use it in my bedroom. 

Can I ask what kind of batting you used?  I'm just starting out with machine quilting and have a quilt top about that size.  After working on a crib size, I'm wondering how I'll ever machine quilt something so big.

Thanks

I used the organic cotton batting that Joann's sells. It's much flatter than the polyester kind, which I think helps with the quilting - plus the no chemicals appealed to me. They have it in all different sizes (though not I think crib size - you'd probably just have to cut another one down to size).
