I've had this book probably for 10 yrs. I've made a few of the quilts in it but never the one on the cover. That quilt was the entire reason I purchased the book. I started the quilt finally. My background will be ivory and navy and I'm not sure about the borders. I know the something will not be red or pink.
The pattern actually calls for 12 finished blocks 10 x 12, I'm doing 9 blocks that size as I don't need another twin quilt.
I like the navy and ivory backgrounds. I'm not working on this quilt very fast and I'm OK with that.
