Potomac River Quilt

When I was young, my parents took us for walks and picnics along the Potomac River just outside of Washington D.C. The colors of green were so lush, and the river was strong and bold.

I made this quilt from a pattern called "Presently Plaid" of A Quilter's Dream. It is a very easy quilt to put together. I started with 25 fat quarters of different green fabrics and 25 of blue fabrics. The fat quarters were cut into 2 1/2 inch strips. The strips were sewn into rows of 4 with either all one color, or alternating colors, in other words the blocks were either all blue, all green, or blue/green/blue/green.
