This is my version of a pattern from Better Homes and Gardens- Scrap Happy. I loved the bright cheeriness of the American Jane fabrics, thus ensued a month long internet search to find and match them. First project setting on point and I have to say it was harder than I expected. I had to rip out seams several times to get the center layout right. In the end it was smaller than I wanted, so I adapted the original pattern with the white sashing and coin strips before the final borders.
Embroidered quilt squares while I was pregnant with my son, then I had to learn to do something with them! My Mother's friend Carol gave me suggestions and sent me on my way to the fabric store armed with several how to books and an old sewing machine she no longer used. Once I pieced the top, Carol showed me how to do the rest and I was hooked.
