Even if you didn't win a copy of the pattern from me, I hope you'll still consider investing $10 (no shipping charges since it is a download from Rebecca's shop) and quilting along. I thought I would close this post by showing you a photo of the photos I am going to be using. I am making this quilt for a friend, who wants to give it to her daughter when she goes away to university in the fall. She chose a bundle of Kona cotton solids in the Hot Spice colourway. I took this photo inside so the colours look a bit wonky. I'll try for a better shot soon.
If you are thinking about using a bundle of precut fabric, here is an important tip: Measure your fat quarters so you know how careful you have to be. The layout in the pattern will give you a mere 1/2" of waste on the short side. In other words, if the short side of your FQ is 18"precisely, as is the case with the Kona solids bundle, then I suggest you do not prewash your fabric, as it could conceivably shrink too much, if you also need to trim slightly to square up the fabric. When I made my first one, I did not measure, I prewashed, and I cut too generously to true up the fabric before cutting the pieces. I ended up having to be creative and patch with a different fabric. I was used to ordering from a shop that cut FQs generously, and I just blithely sailed in thinking I would have loads. Just a word to the wise!
