Double Slice Quilt Top

We all know things can get a bit hectic this time of year, and to make time for sewing and quilting is almost impossible.  But over the weekend I suddenly had a burst of energy and thought of nothing except piecing this double slice quilt top.  And that's exactly what I did.

The pattern calls for a layer cake, but I used a 32pc fat quarter bundle that allowed me to make this quilt larger and I still have bit of fabric left.  I made 49 blocks in total that allowed me to put 7 blocks across and 7 blocks down, so this quilt be a completely square instead of a rectangle shape.  

I have not measured it yet, I'm thinking of adding another strip of white fabric all around to accentuate the scrappy border I've already added.




I cant wait to start quilting, although I have no idea what design to quilt yet...

Happy quilting

Beautiful quilt. This is my favorite pattern of all time from MissouriQuiltCo.com.
Your fabric lines is great too.

Another white border would look awesome. Recently I have also had surge of energy just of piecing :-).
