This makes me happy!

Here it is all bound and ready for show and tell. This is what I have been sewing on while relaxing in St. George. This is my Skip Around the Block quilt out of the Feb/March issue of Quilt. The red and aqua together make me happy, so happy I'm skipping. Not really! The quilt is made almost the same way you do the Twister quilt. First you piece all your blocks together and then cut them on an angle. The hardest part on this quilt is all the cutting, but in the end it's all worth it.
Ramona quilted it with an all over swirl design in aqua thread.
So what do you think of my red and aqua bliss? Check out this cute quilt in the same color ways from Alli. I guess you could say I got my inspiration from her quilt.

Oh by the way, you can skip right on over to the Corn Wagon and they can set you up with a kit for this little beauty.

Shannon, I totally love that quilt. Did you only use bliss or did you mix something else in?

It doesn't look like an easy quilt to me but if it is like the twister it must be! I like the red & aqua. Just as you say, those colors make you happy!
