My Memorial Weekend Project

This last week I purged my whole stash and donated most of it to the Linus Project. While purging I found this project. It was put together to make a scrappy bow tie quilt for a twin bed. The bow tie blocks finish at 2-1/2″ and I need 420 blocks. I know, crazy, huh? Well, I love little piecing and have wanted this quilt for my bed ever since I saw it at my favorite quilt shop, …

Sooo, Mari, I went to the event area on main page, and sent you a message that I would like to attend, but I got a message that said, sorry, this area is private, so I am commenting here in case you didn't get it.

Thanks, Rita

Mari!!! I'm so glad to find you on here!  Did you design the recent Checkerboard Stars Quilt for CT that was featured?  I soooooo wanted to order this kit but 4 days after my catalog arrived, it was out of stock.  I asked if the pattern would be available and was told probably not. :(  I'm devastated!! Well, not like end of the world devastated but, you know. I had finally found the quilt of all quilts (in my opinion!) and wanted to make this for my bedroom.  I've been looking for 2 years for a pattern and fabrics to make just the right quilt for my room, and alas! It was here....for like 30 sec! :)  While I'm glad this pattern went over so well, I'm sad that it disappeared so fast!  Any chance that even if I cannot get the kit, you will post the pattern?  Please?  Pretty please????  :*)  I promise chocolate! :) LOL!!!

Thank you for your time and no matter what, your design was fantastic!!

Hi Mari-You're right this is a fun & cute pattern-I've read all the way through and I have my materials, but now I've run short of time.  I am enjoying all the comments and finally seeing Lou Ann's first block.  Since I can't really contribute I'm just staying mum for the time being & I'll just jump in when my life slows down!  Thank you for offering it to us as a quilt along!!
