Row By Row

I'm always looking for quilt ideas that help me use up leftover scraps.
I really liked the geometric designs of Row By Row designed by Sandy Klop of American Jane Patterns.

I'm happy to report that all the fabrics, including the back came from my stash.
This is also a good design for a little boys room.

Finished size 66 1/2" square
I made this quilt for my grandson who's room is decorated in blue, orange and white.

The piecing was a little labor intensive, but I still enjoyed the process.
You need a large area to lay the individual quilt sections out before sewing.
I kept wishing there was a way to chain piece, but with Sandy Klop's experience, I'm sure she thought of that too.
I am going to brave it, and quilt this one myself. I figure with straight lines it shouldn't be too difficult.

The pattern can be found in the Feb 2011 edition of American Patchwork and Quilting.

Hi Nedra...
I love it!
I bought that magazine too...I think the pattern looks fun and is a good way to show off a line of fabric.
Did you know that I'm taking a class from Sandy at the end of the month?
I'm really excited about it...I love her patterns and fabric:)

Yay Nedra! Your quilt is wonderful! It looks like just the right size for a little boy to snuggle under! The colors are great, and I especially love the striped inner border. Did you see that I made another smaller version of it too? So much fun. What's next on your list?
