Carrie Nelson's little story of the name of this pattern of hers - 4OT - is something about finishing this quilt while watching an exciting hockey game that went into 4 overtimes. Well I'm here to tell you, there were NO OVERTIMES required with this quilt. It was definitely one of the fastest and easiest quilts I've ever assembled. Nice big pieces and everything fit together nicely - it was a real pleasure to work with this pattern and these fabrics. I have a quilter lined up who will do this for me at the end of July, so there will be plenty of time to bind it and have it in the shop when the fabrics - Portobello Market by 3 Sisters for Moda - arrive in September.
Please, don't anyone be intimidated by a Miss Rosie pattern if you haven't made one before. It looks like a lot of pieces, but the effort is definitely worth the result. The hardest part of this one will be waiting until it's finished being a shop model so it can come home to live with me!
