Look What I Bought!
I bought this pattern! And it is going to make a great quilt. Or two. Or three. I could see this becoming my go-to quilt. Truly I could.
Well, no, I haven't made the quilt yet. For pete's sake, I just downloaded the pattern. And I've got a few other things going on. But let me tell you some of the things that strike me about this pattern after perusing it:
. . . The delivery of the pdf was PDQ.
. . . The directions are clear.
. . . The illustrations are excellent.
. . . The cover picture is gorgeous.
. . . The designer provides alternate lay-outs.
. . . It would be easy to change the size of the quilt by increasing either the size of the block, the number of blocks, or both.
And, no, I have no affiliation with Kristy Daum (I never even heard of her until yesterday). Honestly I don't.
Could you see this made of batiks on white? On black? Could you see it made from left-over kid prints on cream? Could you see it totally and I mean totally scrappy? Could you see it a bazillion different ways? I know you could. Because I can. And once you start thinking about it and picturing all that you could do with this pattern, you're going to just have to go here and get yourself a copy. Really you will.
