This quilt was inspired by one that I saw at the Bancroft Ontario quilt show last year. It still uses "leaders & enders", but the 25 patch blocks are organized with the same blue squares forming an X through each block. I set the blocks on point so that I could use a set of 12 quilting patterns that I had saved from the Patchpieces website. They were offered as a free BOM in 2001, and they have been generously kept available on the site since then!
The machine quilted motifs were stitched with a variegated blue thread. I'll show the individual blocks and setting triangles later.
