The colors aren't exactly right, I tried to get them close, but it's more of a guideline so I know what goes where. You can see the fabrics here.

Anyway, here are my patterns. What do you think?

Quilt #1

Quilt #2

The squares are 6"x6", and the quilts themselves are going to be 6'x7'. The border on #2 is 6" wide. I don't think I am going to do a border on #1, unless I find a fabric that is just right. I will also worry about the backing later... :0)

Kristen, I did them on my computer in the draw program. I have a Mac, so I am not sure how exactly it would work on a PC, if that's what you have. I could explore on Kyle's computer and figure it out to tell you!

basically I made a grid, made separate squares that fit inside each grid square filled in with the colors that I had picked to represent each fabric. I then copied and pasted them into the grid to make the pattern that I wanted. If you want to put it on your blog, it is best to save it as a .jpg, which is an option you cna choose when you go to save your document.

It sounds complicated, but it really isn't!! maybe I could come over and show you!!
