1. Kristy is so nice and writes a darned good pattern!
2. The list of participants is short, and all of them were new to me! They are terrific blogs, too, so you'd want to visit them even if there weren't a blog hop going on.
3. Kristy has generously offered me a pdf version of Index to give away!
Now, take a look at that pattern cover. Isn't it interesting? Intriguing? Look like it would be a challenge to do? Yes, yes, and No! Kristy writes very clear instructions, and although I was asked to "make a few blocks," I ended up making a baby quilt.
And here it is! Please click to enlarge it. It took a very short time to make the blocks and put it together. Kristy's pattern is for a larger version and doesn't call for a border, but you know me . . . .
You can visit Kristy here and go to her Etsy shop here, if you need to buy this pattern right away!
Following are those blogs I mentioned above, and the day that they will be sharing Index.

Now, here's the part you're waiting for, i.e., how to win the free pattern! Write a comment telling me what fabrics or colors you would use to make this project. Black with batiks? WOW with 30s? Kaffe on grey?
I'll draw the winner's name on Friday. Make sure I have your email to give to Kristy, as she'll be sending out the pattern directly.
