I bought some Kansas Troubles turnovers a number of years ago and loved the fabrics. I love all their fabric. I forgot about them and rediscovered them a few months ago. I decided I would make a quilt for myself.
I made simple hourglass blocks with the turnovers and trimmed them to 3.5 inches. The quilt is not bed sized, but a good lap size.
The fabric had other ideas. No matter how much I tried to convince myself this quilt was for me, it told me no. I could only see it at my sister's house. So I gave her the quilt for Christmas. It does look perfect in her house.
