Today was a cloudy day and I had a cloudy head for a second day. A weird cold/allergy something that seems to be the rage this week. After sleeping in and taking a steamy shower to open my head, I decided to finish the quilt back that I cut out yesterday.
The top was started in March when I wanted to find a way to use half square triangles in a "new" pattern.
It was finally put together a few weeks ago with Mom pressing the half square triangle blocks till they drove her nuts.
I had quite a collection of browns I had no good use for, and wanted to get some out of my cupboard. Mission accomplished with only a few little scraps left for a future scrap quilt. I used one color (the pumpkin calico) from the front that went together and kept things bright.
Its for my sofa in the family room for those cold evenings when you just need a little something.
Now I have to find a place to put the quilt sandwich together and baste it.
If you want to see where this pattern came from, its in a few places but the one I found helpful is: http://aquiltisnice.blogspot.com/2008/09/zig-zag-quilt-kit-tutorial.html
