I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
I call the pattern for this one Checkerboard & Squares. I haven't actually come up with a name for the individual quilt yet. It is machine pieced and machine quilted (by Front Porch Quilt Shoppe). Melanie has asked me to write a pattern for it. Hopefully I will get around to doing that soon. The quilt finishes at about 42 inches square. I used some of the extra jellyroll strips on the back to make the backing wide enough so that I didn't have to buy extra yardage.
