Read All About It Quilt
I have made this quilt before. It is from the book Strip-Smart Quilts by Kathy Brown. There is one big problem with this quilt and that is that there is a lot of left over squares. So what do you do with these left over squares? I made another quilt.
My Version of Read All About It
I used all the left over squares and put the quilt together in almost the same pattern. I had to take a few squares apart so that the squares in the quilt went together in a pattern. I call these my twin quilts.
These quilts are not for alcoholics; they are for a couple who live in the Napa Valley in California so I thought the fabric was just the thing. The light brown fabric is corks and the border and backing are tossed wine bottles and glasses. I thought it was very fitting for wine country folks. To top it off I picked these fabrics up when a local shop was going out of business so I go a real good deal on the fabric. I bought the rest of the bolt of the tossed bottles, so I used it for the backing as well as the border.
