Preview 21

Take a Jelly Roll,  Bali Pop, Tonga Treat strips, and any of your other favorite 2 1/2" strip rolls.  Add a Theme fabric for fun or a Background fabric if you want the squares to stand out.   The pattern is basically Saratoga, but with the rails made in 4 squares instead of 2 rectangles.  There are loads of leftover rail pieces, so they become a border around the quilt finish framing the Theme Fabric.  This quilt is a generous throw at 60"x68"

The cover quilt is very busy, because I like lots of pattern and print.  Can't wait to make it in something softer, as well as something with more contrast.  And next time I will be more careful with my 1/4" seam allowance.  I did just about everything wrong--sewed at different times, used different machines.  It turned out to be a good thing that this is a busy one.
