I bought this pattern back a few weeks ago and just couldn't get it out of my mind. Last summer I got these bright charms from Connecting Threads...thought they would be perfect for this project! I altered the pattern a bit, just to use up all the charms, then assembled it completely backwards. Hey, it was REALLY late....no wonder none of the strips lined up. I had to trim a ton off the top and bottom. It was a good thing I had pre-planned to have extra negative space, cuz it went in the trash with the trimming...oh well, that's what I get for sewing at 3 in the morning.
So here is the finished top, freshly pieced and ironed. The colors are so vibrant, too. I used Kona Ash for the neutral. Turns out I really like that shade of grey. I am planning to put this baby on the wall in my hallway, in the middle, then pictures of the family all around it.
