Pattern Testing - Banner Year

I'm testing another pattern for Andrea @ 3rd Story Workshop.  You can find Andrea's patterns here.  This is Banner Year, and there are three sizes in the pattern.  I'm testing the twin size.

Cutting went much better after I changed the blade.  😂

I impressed myself with these perfectly matched points.
*Disclaimer:  Not all 49 blocks have perfectly matched points.  😂

Building the blocks by adding more background pieces.

The Kona colours are awesome with this polka dot print.

At this point, the background pieces go on different sides of the blocks.  I had to be careful when I was chain piecing.

Andrea has great patterns -- lots of photos and descriptions, as well as colour scheme suggestions.  Stay tuned as this quilt takes shape.

  6. Disclaimer or not, that's the why for testing. You are doing a fabulous job. I hate matching points!

  7. Wonderful fabric choices! I too love the look of that dot with those solids. Can't wait to see how this quilt comes together! Thanks for linking to Wednesday Wait Loss.

  8. Intriguing! I love the bright rainbow effect you have going and the polka dots do add a lot of interest.

  9. I really like your fabric choices, the bright solid colors look great against the polka dot background.
