Design Wall Monday Oct 22, 2012

Have you ever made a "Winning Hand" by Quilt In a Day?  This is fast, fast, fast and fun!  I picked up the pattern/booklet at a garage sale several weeks ago.  When I showed it to a quilting pal, she said she'd never made one and suggested it would be a good one to try on one of our stitchin' days.  I made mine scrappy, but used the same colors throughout.  And yes, it is so easy. 

When I assembled the blocks, I tried to put the colors in the same position in each block, but messed up about three.  So to try and cover it up, instead of setting them exactly the same, I mixed them up.  Not sure about that.  I made 15 blocks for a twin size, but I might re-set them to match each other and just have a lap size.  Heaven forbid I take the three apart and re-sew them.  Nope.  I'm using the deep purple for sashing, and the floral for the border.

  5. Don't remake them - I like them all mixed up - the true essance of a scrap quilt is to let them lie where they land :) I also agree the border fabric is perfect.

  6. The wonderful "card trick" block was designed by Jeff Gutcheon and published in one of the books he wrote with his then wife, Beth Gutcheon. I love your colorful blocks!

  8. I wouldn't change a thing as this is such a lovely quilt just as it is. And it will look great on a bed or over the back of a couch.
