I haven't been able to completely say goodbye to
Christmas and I'm already missing the colors of fall.
Thank goodness for quilting because no matter
the time of year, we can always get our fix of
any season all year-round in our sewing room.
I'm working Christmas quilt.
The dot fabric along with a few of the others were
just purchased after Christmas but the rest are
from my stash. Using up the stash = happy.
I have almost all of the 1200 pieces cut out but
I'm waiting on a couple green fabrics to arrive.
These should be here soon, along with the
pattern, (I'll get to that) so I think it's safe to
make my February goal to get the blocks for
this snowflake quilt pieced.
There has been some interest in this pattern so
I felt I needed to share the problems I've come up
against in locating it. First, I do not advocate the
sharing of patterns unless they are available for free.
I am always happy to support anyone who has
gone to a lot of work to create them.
This quilt was shared as a free pattern.
However, the link above will only provide page one
of the instructions and there doesn't seem to be
anyone to contact about it. "Free Quilt Patterns"
by Stashify offers no support on their patterns
or links. Quilt Magazine, where the pattern was
originally printed, is no longer in publication and I
can't find the author. Other quilters also seem to
come up empty so, unless the pattern police tell me
differently, if anyone is serious about making this,
I am willing to privately share the missing info since
I have finally tracked down the issue of Quilt on
eBay. I feel this is acceptable in light of all these
*Update: I now have the pattern ready to share.
Please note this is paper-piecing construction.
Good luck to everyone on their monthly goals!
