YOU CAN MAKE THIS COLORFUL QUILT

 I was unable to attend the recent Stitch-in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, however, Diana and Adrienne were so sweet to send me pictures.  Above is the quilt that Adrienne is working on.  Diana sent this work in progress.
 The pattern is called Summer Slice and is from Cluck Cluck Sew.  You can find the tutorial here
 Adrienne sent me this picture.  As you can see she is moving along in getting the blocks made.  Adrienne said, “This is a super fast quilt. I made all those blocks that day, as I had pre-cut the rectangles and 2 1/2" strips.  I  sewed and assembled nine 16" blocks during my 10-5 day.  I’m thrilled with the rapid assembly and am going to make it again in a three color way next time. Six blocks with a border makes a wonderfully colorful neonatal quilt.” 

Caution:  Adrienne also said, “It pays to read all the instructions not just the general idea.!!!!”  Adrienne said that she realized this after she made the cut the wrong way on a couple of the blocks; so she cautions you to think before you cut.  How does that saying go:  measure twice and cut once!
Thanks Adrienne and Diana for sharing with us!

That's all for today Folks!
