Garden Party Tango Antique Tile Quilt

Well, the fabric is available now, so this may be the time to start talking about this quilt!

What happened was this, one day, I was hanging out with my friend Brenda at her house, and we went to visit her fabric stash, and I put my hand on this fat quarter bundle, and my hand got stuck to it.  She said she needed to make it into a shop sample, and I said... I'm not sure what I said, but it amounted to begging her to let me take the bundle home. So, I am making the sample.

And I'm half done! I finished the third row Wednesday night.

Okay, so the block far left is messed up, but I caught that (after the picture) and it's fixed now.
Of course, that still leaves three rows to go...

The fabric is Garden Party Tango by Melissa Ybarra. I am crazy in love with this fabric! The pattern is a variation on a traditional block called Antique Tile, but since that's a three color block, I had to switch it up a bit. Faith of Fresh Lemons has a cool take on Moderning up the Antique Tile block, but I came by it via the Quilter's Cache. My second quilt ever was a (also non-standard) Antique Tile quilt, it's kind of my go to pattern.

Well, we can talk more about it when it's finished, now I want to go and sew!
