Thank you to all who left encouraging comments on my last post. Immediately after I published the post, we left for a three-day trip to the ranch and I did not see what you said until today. I do appreciate hearing from you.
My husband was anxious to finish some chores at the ranch including cleaning out a stock tank and getting things set up for the beginning of hunting season the first weekend in November. The trip gave me a chance to load up Fiona (a.k.a. HQ16) and work on this project.
The pattern came from this book.
The author calls it the “Two Step.” I think I will name my version “All Boxed In and Singing the Blues.” Although the entire quilt is done in a single block pattern, the color placement gives the optical illusion of movement and blocks of differing sizes. I chose to quilt it using a simple meander.
