I’ll bet you think I’m going to tell you I have fully recovered and that’s my good news – nope. I’m still coughing away but I think by tomorrow I can get to the grocery store. The Good News is a new pattern which is available in the online store as a download and also as a paper pattern by mail. Cost is $5.00.
My bed size quilt is not quilted yet but here is an overall shot.
This is a strip pieced quilt consisting of two different blocks.
When I made these blocks I used as many old novelty prints and coordinates that I could find – and still didn’t make a dent in my boxes of fabric! I know you understand. I can’t wait to have some time to put this monster on the longarm!
When I look at the overall photo I think it looks very confusing but I would consider this almost a beginner quilt – two sizes of strips are sewn together, cut once, cut twice, resewn. I know you’ll be surprised! I’m going to make it again – in time with a controlled color palette.
so that’s my good news tonight. Here are the reader quilts:

Fall flowers at the farm. They’ll soon be gone.
