Folksy Flock Quilt Top is complete! There are no Quilt Police in Modern Quilting!

I really love how this turned out.  I took the instructions from issue 48 of Love Patchwork and Quilting and did some math to come up with the needed pieces for a quilt for a full-size bed. 

33 A Blocks ~ Green

  • 132 green print 5.5”x3”
  • 264 background 3” squares
  • 66 background 3”x10.5”

24 B Blocks ~ Blue

  • 48 blue print 10.5”x5.5”
  • 96 background 5.5” squares

25 C Blocks ~ Yellow and Aqua

  • 25 yellow print 5.5”x3”
  • 25 aqua print 5.5”x3”
  • From background fabric
  • 100 3” squares
  • 25 5.5” squares
  • 25 5.5”x3”
  • 25 5.5”x8”

There are a lot of pieces in this quilt; when I did the math, initially, I thought I only needed 23 B Blocks and 24 C Blocks; I was incorrect and improvised!

This shows rows 8, 9 and 10 sewn together.  See the pinwheel at the top of the photo and the two yellow flying geese near the bottom left?  Those are my two improvs and that is Frisco checking up on me.

I don't think most people would notice and I'm very happy with the results.  There are no Quilt Police in Modern Quilting!

Now, to make the quilt back!

May your bobbins always be full,
