As you can see we are taking this nice and easy. With the big stuff up front so if you get behind you will have plenty of time to catch up. There are also a couple of giveaways to look forward to.

This week is easy. Just cut your background squares and rectangles. Here are mine. They are a lovely spring green but not showing true in the picture. I thought I would do this version in bright happy colors verses the fall colors I used last time.


  1. I love this pattern however, I went crazy trying to find it in my magazine it is located in the "Quiltmaker" issue Jan/Feb 2016. I tore my sewing room apart looking through all my magazines after I couldn't find it in my Fons and Porter Love of Quilting mag. It was worth all the work though. Can't wait to get started.

  2. Just ordered the pattern from Quiltmaker.

  3. Oh my goodness, never done a Sew Along, and have plenty of sewing in my sewing area not completed, but something about this grabbed me and I don't think I would need to purchase much material (!), so I have just bought the pattern. Eek. Better get started, I'm already behind.
