I discovered quilting blogs about 3 years ago and boy, was I hooked. Then I started reading about these "bees" where people exchanged brilliant quilt blocks. How fun is that? About two years ago I joined my first bee where we exchanged improvisational blocks. It was sooo much fun. Wendy organized the bee and I have been stopping by her blog (Sewing in the Wendy City) off and on since then. I was so
jealous excited for her when she went to Market last month. Not only did she go to market but she also wrote her first pattern.
I give you...Betty - a classy lady with a wonky style. :)
Wendy sent me a copy of her pattern. The instructions are simple and thorough. Plus, there is no waste of fabric. I LOVE that. I hate patterns where you buy a tons of fat quarters and then only use a bit of them, but I digress... The finished quilt size is 50 x 65 (the perfect size in my opinion) and Wendy gives instructions and fabric requirements for a twin sized quilt also.
Not sure if it is your style? Take a close up look at the same pattern in solids. I love it! The colors remind me of my brother's botched quilt. I need to fix that...someday...
Wendy has offered to give one luck reader a free copy of her new pattern. If you would like a chance to win, simply leave a comment.
