I decided on using the Small Plates pattern from The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmakerfor my quilt.
After spending a time over a three day period precisely cutting strips and squares, I decided I don't know why in the world people like quilting!
Once I got done with the cutting and got to the fun part of sewing, though, I liked it a little more.
Didn't these blocks turn out cute?
I'm a little worried that I didn't buy a wide enough variety of fabric. The pattern calls for 20 different prints, and I used much less than that. We'll see.
