Goldilocks pattern is now available!

                               Click here for One Monthly Goal May Finish Link-up

I'm excited to announce that my pattern for Goldilocks has been released!

Goldilocks offers a fun twist on the traditional churn dash block.  The blocks are made in three different sizes resulting in a quilt that's 'just right'.*

The pattern is available from my Payhip pattern store - use the code GOLD before June 4th to save 25%.  

The pattern is perfect for reasonably sized scraps - which is what I used.  It is also a great layer cake quilt!  The finished quilt is 59 1/2 x 65 1/2 ''.

Have a wonderful day! Patty

My Yellow Blocks

I am not really a yellow kind of person.

Not something you'd realize looking at my Instagram feed where I've been sharing a block daily.  My daughter has claimed this quilt.  She is busy repainting her room a shade of gray.  I've got an awesome block setting in mind that will bring in some gray negative space to balance out the yellow.

My favorite block so far might be number 2 because of the two elephants.  I also like #10 (no yellow) or #12.   Which is your favorite?

For my project, I am using this FQ bundle of Pastel Pop by Michael Miller which was sitting in my stash. These fabrics are the ONLY yellow I've got in my stash other than a bit in a solid.

Read more about the QAL here and follow along on Instagram with #100Days100Blocks2017.  You can find the 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book on Amazon.
