Here it is in progress earlier this year.
These colors aren't necessarily my first choice though I do love red. But I scored all these fat quarters at the thrift store. I have, to date, mostly made any quilts from scraps and not too many that were already coordinated and picked out for me. I decided this would be a personal challenge to make it into something fun and interesting and not fuddy-duddy.
I ended up with 11 rows instead of 14 as the pattern calls for. However, I also made my strips a little longer than Amanda Jean's. I was trying to eek out as much as possible from my fat quarters.
- Final quilt top dimensions: 66 inches by 79 inches.
- Used 23 Marcus Brothers Civil War Print fat quarters
