This is a commissioned memorial quilt for a sweet lady that has lost her father. This is made with his uniform shirt logos and Malka Dubrawsky's fabric line Simple Marks that I got from www.fatquartershop.com. I love, love, love these fabrics and colors.

After receiving this fabulous Moda "Noteworthy" fat quarter bundle from the Fatquartershop.com I started to think about quilt patterns. I recently got a new bed so I was excited to make a king sized quilt to put on it. The following pattern is what I chose. I do not know the name of this pattern, I saw it somewhere a while back and never forgot about it. I love the way these sweet colors go together.
Here is a quick visual of how I made this quilt. I cut my strips 3.5" x 11". I pieced them light, then dark, then light. For the size quilt I made, I connected 11 strips per row, starting and ending each row with a half strip. I had to supplement with various neutrals from my stash. This pattern leaves you with almost 500 bonus half square triangles. Be sure to save these for a future project.
