Hmmm…an ugly quilt in the making?

pick and choose

I’m making up a quilt from a pattern called “Pick and Choose” by Carrie Nelson (Miss Rosie Quilt Co.) published in American Patchwork & Quilting June 2009.

All I can say is thank goodness I precut *everything* for this quilt – or else I might just have given it up somewhere along the line.

There is a lot of sewing in these blocks. Each block is made of four units, each unit is made up of two four-patches and two hsts, – I’ve sewn all the units, and made about 9 of the 20 blocks (the pattern calls for a 5 x 5 setting, I’m making 4 x 5). Oops – I can see a placement mistake in one of the blocks :) Then there is a pieced sashing, and a pieced border. The fabrics are almost all 1800s repros and a variety of printed neutrals. Right now I think it looks a bit like the dog’s breakfast, but amazing things have been known to happen when quilt blocks turn into a quilt – so I’m hoping!

I knew I'd seen this quilt elsewhere. Here's another version, just in case you haven't seen it. http://thethriftyquilter.blogspot.com/search/label/Pick%20and%20Choose

Same pattern; two totally different looks. It's hard for me NOT to finish a project once I've invested time in it. It's not "ugly" and would make a very nice gift for someone!
