Thrilled!


Do you remember this 16 patch quilt (on the left) I showed several months ago? This is my pattern and it came about strictly by accident. I had these four patches that weren't playing well together so I made 16 patches...... and on and on and on. I finished the quilt, posted it on my blog. Carol asked me for the pattern - what????? - there is no pattern - well write one she said and I'll test it for you - what????? LOL! To make a very long story short - I looked at my quilt and sent instructions over a period of several days and her quilt was finished! (on the right)

I love Carol's quilt as much as I love mine and am thrilled beyond words that she wanted to make one. I can't help but smile when I think about or write about this little venture. No, there is still no pattern. LOL

I hope you're having a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping - come again soon.

In Friendship!

It is like a quilt along. How fun. It is interesting to see the different takes on things. I love simple designs. They catch my eye much more than artsy intricate quilts. This one is perfect. Good idea.

Lizzie said...

What a wonderful quilt. Wonder if a jelly roll would do the trick for this quilt?

Actually, Darlene, I've had your version of the 16 patch saved as "NEW" ever since you first posted it. I thought it was smashing, simple, AND a beauty! I'll make it one of these days. 8-)) I'll bet there are many of us with the same idea. 8-)

Carol said...

Time to get writing! It sure was a fun one to do...I just LOVE it! Thank you for sharing it with me.

Quilt Hollow said...

Uh Speedy...I sorta think there is a pattern. You told Carol how to do it, right? It has been tested, tried and true. Both version are equally lovely. Sounds like your on the way to becoming a pattern designer to me!

Trish said...

Both quilts look great. I am going to have to add this to my never-ending 'to do' list!

I have to jump in and say that I love that quilt, too. A great Pattern. If you choose not to contemplate publishing this pattern, just know it's really really enjoyed by a lot of us and maybe you could write it up and print it up and sell it to US! I'd buy it.

Carol said...

You should make a pattern, I would totally buy one. You could sell them on Etsy. Love your quilt.

Allie said...

I agree - you should make a pattern and sell it! It's been tested, so go for it - it's absolutely darling!

quiltsbylee said...

That is so cool. You should be flattered and write up a pattern. Not much new in quilting so when a quilter sees a different pattern she jumps on it....lol

Great minds think alike -- I agree with everyone who commented. You really should do a pattern! Seriously! It's such a beautiful quilt and really needs to be shared. I'm just saying.

Quilter Kathy said...

I have heard it said that imitation is the highest form of flattery! Both versions are lovely!

Ginger Patches said...

It's absolutely adorable...I just saw it on Carol's blog and didn't realize it was that quilt, but I loved it when you first posted it :) You need to write a pattern so I can make it too :) How's it going big sis? My computer has been down for awhile so I've got some catching up to do, I love everything you've been working on, as usual :)

Kim said...
