For March I wanted to quilt the Jacob's Ladder quilt.  Last night it came off the Princess--
it was a RSC project, the HST in each block featured that month's color.  I wanted a rectangular quilt so made picket fence borders at the top and bottom.  I had some wide cream flannel and I dyed it--
The color is called Rose Brown, I called it "tired grape".  The border is a dark purple in the same shade so it was a great choice.  The quilt pattern is called Teeter Totter, I used a light lavender thread on top and a darker purple on the bottom.

I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts.  Tomorrow I will pick OMG for April.

That's a pattern I've been wanting to make. I know I have the pattern somewhere. Lord knows I have plenty of scraps. I think the pattern I'm thinking of starts off with 2.5 and 4.5 strips. At some point I cut a bunch of the 4.5s and have never used them for anything.

I like your "tired grape" backing. Tired Grape!!!! :) :) :)
