I do love this pattern. It went together like a breeze. And I really like using something other than white or black for a background fabric. I had admire Kim's quilts when she uses other colours for backgrounds so thought I'd give it a go and man does it work!
I just took out the teal and greens from the packs and used some teal yardage for the background and voila! Lovely.
I like doing these quilt alongs, I think it keeps me motivated, and really helps with time management, which I'm normally pretty bad at, or was, I am getting better.
