The schedule is — block pattern instructions for the center of the quilt available on Saturday. There are two different block styles that make up the center of the quilt.
Sunday, I’ll post the block instructions to make the outer border blocks.
Monday, the sashing / plain border instructions and putting it all together.
As previously stated, these are the “quicky instructions.” They are not as detailed as if I were writing a pattern for use elsewhere but this is such a simple quilt, they should not be hard to follow.
Quilt size as shown is 60″ x 72″ If you go to yesterday’s blog post about the stitch along, you will find additional information – like download links to just a black and white line drawing of the quilt to use to preplan where your fabrics will be placed (get out those colored pencils or label the locations of specific fabrics for your reference perhaps) and other information. It also contains the very important information on how to download a Box.net file (the site where my patterns are stored). It’s very easy to do, no sign up is required but you do need to actually use the DOWNLOAD button found the site. The same info on file download can also easily be found in the button at the top of the blog called “copyright and use of my patterns.” If you are saving the pattern for later use and have never downloaded from Box.net, I suggest you read it or your pattern may not really be saved when you go to look for it. Remember, I don’t email patterns out privately.
If you like the fabrics show n in this quilt – check them out at The Loopy Ewe. The fabrics in this one just make me smile. I love those daisy prints especially and they are so bright and pretty. They are from the Moda Pot Luck collection.
The version I’ll be working on this weekend will be using more Loopy Ewe fabrics – this time I’ll be working with these fabrics:
They are Cloud 9 Fabrics – Bark and Branch collection and some from the Shape of Spring collection and some Riley blenders. The hardest part will be deciding what fabric to use where but I’ll be making a larger bed-size version for myself so I’ll have more blocks to spread the fabrics around in.
Don’t tell Sheri at The Loopy Ewe but I’m not so sure it’s a good thing they added a fabric department. It’s seriously cutting into my yarn budget. ;-).
There’s also a link in the sidebar for my Flickr group – a place to share photos of blocks/quilts made from my patterns. Please feel free to join and share your blocks or completed project photos – you never know when I might do a giveaway drawing from among the photos uploaded. 😉
Now, what you’ve been waiting for:
