The pattern is "Take 5" by The Teachers Pet and is a VERY easy pattern to do: 5 different fabrics, 1 block,
*I* made it more difficult by choosing 2 fabrics that I wanted to fussy cut to highlight them properly. :-)
In early December 2011, I was between customer quilts and decided that since I was in a longarm quilting mood, I would load up this top and get it quilted.
I'm so glad I did! It's wonderful to be able to cross a project off the list as "finished"! :-)
The outer border looks to be a bunch of narrow stripes, doesn't it? Well ... I fooled you good! It's really a floral border stripe. The brown inner border really *is* a separate piece of fabric.
Rope-a-Dope template. The template made it VERY easy to stitch and it came out looking so wonderful.
I did continuous curves in the "solid" squares and outline stitched the teacups and dessert images.
