Kansas Spirit BOM
Here's the quilt top I was working on all weekend and which was on my design wall in pieces yesterday. The last border was added to the quilt about 6 this evening which gave me just enough time to do a quick photo session and get to the shop before it closed. (I promise the quilt is 'square' and really doesn't have lumps. It was the flannel behind the quilt and the hangers making it hang weird.)
The pieced blocks are from the book Kansas Spirit, by Jeanne Poore. Connie at Heritage picked out 12 of the 15 blocks to use as a Block of the Month and she choose to use a variety of Kansas Troubles fabrics to use for the blocks. Tomorrow participants are picking up the Courthouse Steps and then there are two more blocks.
This layout is not in the book, but rather one I pulled together. This will be the choice for the smaller of the two quilts (approx. 65 x 83). I've got about half of the instructions written for this layout. There will be a larger choice finishing at approximately 89 x 108 which I still have to write. I've got it drawn in EQ.
