B 74 - Betty Tyree Giant Square Dance, Rope, 18" Crosshatch

I used "spots" of the giant templates though out the quilt. I used the rope in various sections of border. I love using the 18" crosshatch templates diagonal lines for borders, sashing and background fill using various lengths and direction. I think it gives a great texture relief along with the freehand. I also discovered using the square dance for the border is fast and funky. I filled the gaps with freehand hearts.This quilt is called "One day in the country is worth a month in town" , by Inigo Junction . This is a folk-art quilt of the month designed by Sarah Sporrer, and was made my sister in- law Natalie Norris of Roanoke, Va.
