I was very curious about the blocks in this Sunkissed pattern by Margot Languedoc Designs for the Pattern Basket.  I had never seen this pieced block before, I was so curious I immediately bought the pattern to see how these blocks were pieced.  Then I pieced one.

And once I pieced one, I couldn't stop.

The pattern calls for 10 rows of 6 blocks, I went with 11 rows of 8 blocks.

This is my favorite block, 

one of those happy accidents. 

These blocks are a breeze to piece and go really fast.  They are also very forgiving with no seams to line up or match.

So once I got the center of the quilt finished it was time to add the outer border.  I rarely add a plain outer border to my quilts, sometimes I go with a pieced border but normally I just call it quits when the blocks are pieced.

I picked out my two favorite prints then decided that I liked the bold orange best and chose that for my outer border.

And ended up with this.  Which just did not suit me, and I can't even explain why.  I left it on my design wall overnight, and still didn't like it the next day.

So I trimmed it down and added a plain outer border, to get this, which I do like, a lot.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 202
It finished at 56" x 58"
The fabric is a mix of Desert Bloom and Creekside, both by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda
It has 645 pieces.

I'm not sure what to start next. . . . . .  . . but I'm sure I'll think of something.
