my quilt was made using the book "strip clubbing", the name of the pattern is "amazing grace." of course it is easily identifiable as being a delectable mountains variation, and i've also made a similar one that was named "crazy eights." the one thing they did was to make a fabric choice so that the pinwheel was predominant in the design. it was a very easy quilt using strips that i purchased from connecting threads. there were also many gold strips in the set, but i chose to remove those and instead use a background fabric that was similar in color. they had already created the pallette so i knew it would look good ;)
glad to see the BB more active these days. hopefully it will continue.
