Quilter’s Scrapbook pattern available
The pattern for Quilter’s Scrapbook is now available for purchase. Click on the "Pattern Shop" tab above to go to my online shop.
Thank you to my three volunteer pattern testers Just Another Quilter, Deb and Liri for helping make sure the pattern is clear and error free. All of them had a lot of other projects in the works already and they kindly put some aside to make a test quilt. I really appreciate their work and their suggestions along the way. I have really enjoyed seeing what the design looks like made with totally different scraps and fabrics.You can see Just Another Quilter’s version with blue borders and sashing here. Deb also has blue in her brown and blue version in progress.
Liri tested the sashing and borders but played with a different block and sent me this picture. She replaced the 100-patch blocks with pinwheels surrounded by scrap squares. How fun is that?
You can substitute any 10” block for the 100-patch block, or use an 8” block with a 1” frame to build it up to the right size to fit in Quilter’s Scrapbook’s setting.
What else can I tell you about the pattern? The X units in the sashing and borders are paper pieced, but don’t let that scare you. The PDF pattern includes a full photo tutorial with step-by-step pictures and instructions to piece these units.
Time to go inspect the scrap bins and see what else might take shape…
