Hello Friends! I hope you have had a good weekend. Last Monday, I announced the release of Harrisonburg pattern to exclusively benefit the Virginia Quilt Museum, as well as the upcoming quiltalong hosted by Pat Sloan that will be happen on February 14!
In case you missed it, the announcement post is HERE should you want to read and get caught up.
Pat and I are super excited about this adventure! Of course, you will want to watch Pat’s videos on YouTube for tips and tricks in making the Harrisonburg blocks.
THANK YOU, and THANK YOU for your warm responses so far! I heard that the museum had sold many patterns. Thank you for helping Pat Sloan and myself help the museum.
Pattern in PDF is available NOW by clicking HERE.
The printed patterns are making their way to the museum. Give the museum a few days to update their website.
This design lends itself to all sorts of color combinations! I am doing mine just random scrappy, using just useable fabric pieces of blues and cream.
If you want a more controlled scrappy look, my pattern gives yardages for a total of 18 fabrics sorted into 6 fabric sets. Each fabric set makes 5 blocks, for a total of 30 blocks from the 6 fabric sets. And the leftovers will be used to make the diamond-in-square units for the border.
Pat is doing hers in the controlled scrapy layout with her Sleepover fabrics.
Info for Sleepover fabrics is HERE
