Back on April 18, I posted our Brown Owl Patchwork Quilt both of these quilt were supposed to be one quilt or so the Boss (Tanya) told me. When I was cutting the material up and counting the squares I realized that if I put a cute border on the quilt I could make 2 quilts instead of the one quilt Tanya suggested.
As you can see this quilt like its brown cousin, has a random pile of blocks in the middle. Tanya tries to tell me that when I put too many blocks of the same color together, I am not so random. But then again you can flip a coin and get the same side over and over so I am good with all the matching blocks in my quilt.
Because of my change of plan mid cutting, these 2 quilts took longer to finish then originally planned. They are both quite similar. They both have a solid 1 inch band around the middle blocks. The green one has the light blue jacks, the brown one has brown jacks on the outside edge. The bindings on both are stripes, a green for the green and a brown for the brown.
We even put matching backs on the 2 quilts. Well the green of the same pattern and brown of the same pattern. Other things going on in the background I have one of the random strip quilts on the sewing machine. I think it looks cute, but it is getting twisted puckers. I really need to work on figuring out how when quilting to not cause my own puckers. You can see for example the pink and yellow in the picture looks twisted. Oh well, maybe it wont look so bad when washed.
