Simple square blocks with a "frame" around them. We had no trouble finding prints that Anna liked. Here's what we bought:
The Native American print (upper left above) will be the backing. The rest is for the top.
The blocks are simple, so putting them together took very little time, maybe a couple of hours:
I didn't "fussy cut" the blocks, knowing that just cutting randomly would work out fine with the size blocks in this quilt (7" squares). I laid them out carefully, making sure that blocks with similar images weren't too close together.
And here's a closeup of what they look like (click any of the photos on this page to see a larger image):
And here's the center all assembled and ready for the borders
It's stunning. I'm really pleased with how that top turned out. The back, however? Not so pleased. Honestly, I don't know why, but I was thinking that the seam wouldn't really show up - but it does.
I've just randomly joined backs before when using printed fabric. The problem here is that we're looking at a one-way design. It's just not random enough for doing what I did.
You can see what I mean in the photo below. The seam is just about 1/3 from the left. BLAST!
