a summer quilt

El plan original era hacer un quilt como este, usando el patrón del libro "Material Obsession", pero los cuadros protagonistas son muy grandes (16.5 pulgadas) y como no tenía tela suficiente con estampados grandes, decidí hacer una modificación, pues no quería comprar más tela (bueno, realmente SÍ quiero, pero no debo!). Así que para usar lo que tengo en casa, decidí cortar cuadros de 10" y como se hace en los bloques de log cabin, sólo añadí tiras y así logré tener mis bloques de 16.5 pulgadas que el patrón requería.
The original plan was make a quilt like this one, using the pattern from the book "Material Obsession", but the central squares are so big (about 16.5 inchs) and I don't have to much fabric to make them, so i made a little change because i don't want buy more fabric (wait! I DO want, but I must don't do it...). So to use what I have in my stash I cut the squares from 10" and like to make log cabin blocks, I added some stripes and finally I had the 16.5" squares that I needed for this pattern.
El resto del trabajo ya lo pueden ver terminado:
