Posey Patch Quilt

When I first finished my Craft Room v2.0, I had to borrow a quilt from my mom's collection on account of the news coming to my house to interview me about my Etsy shop.  We found that her "Posey Garden" quilt (modified Pauline Smith's Chelsea Quilt pattern from Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in the Sun book) matched the color of my walls perfectly.  It was so perfect, and I loved it and didn't want to give back.  But, I did give it back, which left me with an empty wall.  My mom graciously offered to help me make my own.  We followed the same basic pattern, but some of the fabric it used was out of print, so we had to make do with a couple of replacements.  The photo below shows my mom's quilt in my art room:
My quilt ended up more of a square, since we didn't do as many borders for my but it actually works better since it is more out of reach of little kid fingers.  I named my version "Posey Patch".
I love having this cheery quilt to brighten up my basement craft room.  Right now I'm down there working on Easter dresses for my girls.  It's my first time using a pattern in years, so there is a lot of refresher learning, and it's my first time making dresses, so there is also a lot of new learning going on.  The pattern said "easy", but I am beginning to doubt that. . .

Nice site! It is surprisingly hard to find really good, well-illustrated instructions for crafts online.
