Blueprint Quilt {love/hate}

Inspired by this dress

from May/June 2007 Blueprint Magazine
****so sorry about the quality...the page got really beat up during quilt process.
This is the original article it appeared in, but does not include the photo of this dress.

The Quilt

Finished size measures 71.5 x 50.5 inches

I kept track of my costs this time around for those who are curious

all solids purchased at my local Joann's using 40-50% off coupons
prints purchased at local quilt shop
1 yard Kona cotton solid in "Navy" $3.19
1 yard Country Classic cotton in "Kelly" $2.15
1 yard Quilter's Cotton in "Honeydew" $2.64
1 yard Country Classic cotton in "Artesian Blue" $2.15
3 yards Kona cotton solid in "White" $9.57
3 1/2 yards Lattice Urban Green by Fabri-Quilt (sale) $10.50
5/8 yard polka dot $6.00 (this one hurt after getting all the rest so cheaply, but it was so perfect)
1 2/3 yard Warm and natural Quilt batting $11.oo
TOTAL COST = $47.20

I didn't take as many photos of this quilt. Probably because I go from LOVING to HATING it about every other week. I'd do a lot of things different if I had a do-over. #1 though is a less literal translation.

But......It was just one of those things I had to get out of my system.
