Monday January 31, 2011


This is a post I have been waiting impaitently to write for several months.  I am thrilled to be finished with my Roll Roll Cotton Bowl top.  Yep, top.  It does still need to be quilted.  But with this quilt that is the easy part.  And I'm quite sure I have never said that before. What a great project this turned out to be.  It was so much fun to work so hard each week trying to be ready for the next weeks mystery post. I have always enjoyed string quilts and have bought several pattern books using string quilts.  After the making the sixty blocks in this quilt I may be broke of the desire to ever make another one with strings.   But there was certainly a great sense of accomplishment when they were done.    I did decide to make my quilt square.  Therefore, I have blocks left over for pillow shams or a small quilt.  But they will certainly NOT go on the back of a quilt.  At least not the back of this one.  Thanks so much to Bonnie Hunter for such a great pattern.  It was a lucky day indeed when I found Quiltvilles Quips and Snips.  She has plenty of inspiration to share with a little bit of humor thrown in to boot. 

Be sure to go to Patchwork times for a great place to see  projects on Judy's Design Wall Monday.  And check out her great patterns while your there. 

And the next time someone says mystery quilt, I'm sure you will see me and my posts tagging along for the ride.

I like your RRCB. I didn't care much for the original coloration of this pattern. This however is really pretty. Nice job!
