Slide Show

I have always liked Terry Atkinson's quilt patterns.  The cutting instructions are simple and easy to follow.  I have made the "Yellow Brick Road" pattern numerous times and have recommended it to beginner quilters.  I saw this "Slide Show" pattern at the quilt shop and envisioned lots of possibilities!  I wanted to make a quilt to match the colors in Lindsay's (my daughter) craft room.  She decorated her craft room in red and mint green.  I will have to blog about her craft room soon...

I added stars in the corner, because I love stars :)

It was a lot of fun choosing the fabrics fore this quilt.  Do you notice how pretty the machine quilting is?  Thank you Cindy Paulson :)

This is the time that I used white as a background in my quilt.

I was able to choose large prints for the squares, so I was really careful in choosing the fabrics.  The same prints were used in the little squares.

I bought the green floral for the back, but used leftover pieces of the prints I used on the back.  I always think it makes the quilt more interesting.  

I hope you have been inspired to think about making a Slide Show of your own :)

  1. I like your Slide Show even better than the pattern front. Great choice of fabrics, and I love how you fussy cut some of the blocks.
