FNSI........My test pattern quilt

What I have been doing on my FRIDAY DAY/NIGHT SEW IN
I have been testing a pattern for Jan from The Colourful Fabriholic
 http://thecolorfulfabriholic.blogspot.com.au/2014/10/plus-dash-tutorial-draft-pattern.html

This was the photo of original pattern from Jan

So I decided to go for it today.
I chose to do mine in a neutral colour for a cot quilt size. This way it can be put away for that special little person... It was a great pattern. Very easy to follow. 
And yes, the best part was, it was QUICK, LARGE BLOCKS and EASY.
Jan gives you directions for a variety of sizes. The blocks measure 14" so they go together very quickly. The instructions are easy to follow.
After I cut all my pieces I had left over fabric. Just incase I slipped with the rotary... Haha.....
I did have a few fat 1/8ths in Browns so I used them instead of fat 1/4s. I didn't have any trouble with not enough fabric.


 Here are my blocks cut out and sewn together. I am very happy with the colours.


Time for a break and off to eat dinner......

Back to follow the rest of the directions and here we have a finished cot size flimsy.
I am very impressed with this pattern as I can see how it would adapt to using up scraps or a feature fabric instead of the background. I will be doing this pattern again....


Now when will I get to quilt it.....


Now to see what others got up to tonight check out here......
