My crazy Aunt (I say that with the upmost respect and admiration, I love her to death!) found a zillion upholstery samples at a rummage sale or for free somewhere or something and gave them to me to make something pretty. This was the result! I wanted to play around with drunkard's path, but it looks pretty complicated and I'm impatient and sometimes like to sew with a glass of wine, so I went with a very simplified version. I just arranged color families instead of following a strict pattern to get the stripes. The patterns are all so busy that I was able to use pretty large blocks, 8 inches square before seaming. Even though I used large blocks and didn't make a full size quilt, it's more of a throw for the couch size, it took me over a year to finish it. I'd work on it for a few days and then put it away for months at a time and forget about it.



I used little yarn ties to hold the quilt top, batting, and backing together. It's kinda thick so I was afraid too much top stitching would make it too stiff.
