Flashback Friday – 9/10

When I lived in Washington, I saw on a blog (I am sorry, it has been a while ago) the BQ pattern.  I didn’t know what it was, but I loved it.  I had bought a bunch of fall fabrics, and wanted something to do with it.

One night, I stayed up late and couldn’t sleep and drafted BQ into my EQ5 program and debated whether I should get up and take photos of the fabrics so I could see what it would look like.  The next day, I made one block and then photo shopped it into a quilt.  I loved it.  This is about 1/3 scale of what the pattern is. 

Fast forward to last year when I finally finished the top.  I am thinking next week is the week that I need to sandwich it and possibly quilt it and have it ready for my bed in time for “fall” – not that there really is a fall here in Hawaii.

I am going up to one of the local quilt stores (the Tuesday Bee is held there once a month) – and I can pick out thread.  They carry “King Tut” and I am very fond of it for quilting.
