I mentioned the other day I was going to try and replicate a quilt for a friend for her 80th birthday. When Mum stayed here, we went through our combined fabrics and were able to find a piece to match most blocks. I wanted to get the quilt top made up so I knew if I had to buy any more fabrics. I'll put it away for a bit as I need to match the backing and binding before I quilt it. I think the trickiest bit was working our what size squares to cut to make the half square triangles so the quilt came out the same size. I ended up cutting 4 & 3/4 inch squares. Pretty simple quilt really. I wish it had made a bigger hole in my country colours stash. My tastes have changed. I notice Crazymomquilts is having the same problem.
