I made this quilt, all from the scrap bin, some years ago. It is a favorite of mine, and I love the blocks with high contrast the best. You can find a free pattern for it below. I became acquainted with the quilt pattern on Bonnie Hunter's Website, and immediate loved it for the use of scraps and maybe because of the name, too!!
Please take a look at all her free scrap quilt patterns! Go down a little ways down on her page to find the sister's choice pattern. This is one of my favorite pattern places!
So...I was just playing around, and what if...I made the nine patch from 2 inch strips, and the muslin background from 2.5 inch strips!! Yahoo! Another variation is born!! And I just love plaids, as you know, and can use my strings and scraps for this quilt.
I am going to try to make 56 of these babies, and sash them with pieced sashing. I love that part, and by the way? This is not on my to-do list....and that makes it even more fun!!
