Yes, it’s the last day of the blog hop… So sad! I’ve loved seeing what everyone has made with the ‘Gator quilt. It was such fun and is inspiring me to make another one!
This was actually my original one. My first test. I just happened to make it while our Modern Quilt Guild was preparing for our Binary quilt show, meaning quilts with only 2 colors. I made the large ‘gator block. Then I realized, hey! It’s only two colors, I could make this into a quilt for the Binary show. I was only using shades yellow and green. Perfect!
Then I realized I was out of yellow! So my quilt guild pal that took over my spot at the fabric shop was kind enough to bring me what I thought was the right yellow. But…… It wasn’t. At first, I was wondering how I was going to make it work. Then I started piecing some other blue greens and yellows in and it’s perfect! I love it!
I wish I had used some of the animal fabric from my other ‘gator quilt on the back of this one, but I was nervous about running out, so I didn’t! I love a fun pieced back!
I did make a few changes to the pattern after this. Mostly in the piecing, but also in the teeth! My very first tester suggested more teeth, so I made more! They are hard to see here, but there are only 3 white teeth. I do like them better with more, but you can alter the pattern for as many teeth as you’d like!
And for the giveaway! I’ll give away 2 patterns to 2 readers! I know, usually you do that at the beginning of the blog hop… I had intended to do it with the testers pictures post I did on Friday. But if you follow me on Instagram, you know our pup was viciously attacked by a pit bull on our morning walk last week. And since then I’ve been a mess! So it took me a week to get the giveaway together! Ready?
